We have enjoyed camping here and will continue to visit. Great hiking trails though most will have to be driven to because they're on the other side of the park. Some sites are nice and shaded and others are less than desirable. The bath houses have always been super clean. The complaints I have are with reservations and staff. It... More

First off, it's a gorgeous venue. However, for RV camping, it needs help. Sites are super close together, sort of. They will have two sites 100% side by side. They don't even look separate. Then there will be space and two more. I reserved well in advance for a large RV and we were given a 30 amp site. Since... More

The park is well maintained and offers full hookup sites. They don't offer wifi or cable tv but we were able to get quite a few channels via antenna. The staff was very friendly as were the volunteers who stay in the park. The campground is a little over four miles into the park but it is a very pretty... More

We rented cabins for 3 nights. Kids ages 2, 5, 6, 7, 8, 15, 16, 17 all had a blast! Tons of things to do: hike, swim, fish, canoe, archery, and cook out just to mention a few. The petting zoo was a big bonus as well.... We are already in the process of planning our next family vacation. Great... More

Plenty of activities to include lakes, hiking trails, and a wonderful petting zoo. We have tent camped here twice this year and had a really great time, regardless of the weather. Our only complaint would be about the front office staff, two of which were extremely rude over the phone and in person. If you are new to camping, and... More

This place is only good for either as a picnic spot or if you want to do some hiking or ride bicycle on the trails, apart from that there is much you could do here. Its just an okay place in my opinion. I wouldn't go back there again.

We arrived at the park at 7:30 am on a July Sunday. It was a lovely time to swim in the large, clean swimming area with a nice sandy beach. We then went for a drive up the mountain and spent some time at the bird refuge and the woods overlook area. The playground was really nice, too. As we... More

Camped a night. There are very nice lakes, hiking routes, bicycle routes (special one for mountain bikes) inside the park to enjoy. Such a beautiful state park. Must see
