Great Park and facilites

This is a great family park to visit. Check with Park staff before swimming, as the water clarity may not be to your liking.

Just 30-45 minutes from the south shore, this park is a nice day trip for any family. There's plenty of room for all and you can spend a few hours or a few days here. The park is also within driving distance of many other attractions on the north shore so if you forgot to bring something you can hop... More

Our family has been camping here for years. It's the spot we choose when we have only a weekend to get away. There is no pool and the beach isn't what one may think of when they hear the word "beach" but it is away from it all yet in the middle of a great place for day trips. Holiday... More

This park with its large oaks is very pretty, well maintained, and offers large camp sites. Only a few sites have full hook-ups, but that's OK as the dump station is very convenient. The beach and fishing pier are very nice. Dogs are not allowed on the beach...dang. I did notice some Greasy ares were soggy, but there has been... More

Camped here during a wet spell, and it was pretty damp. Flooding at some sites, but we remained high and dry. Loved watching the deer all over the campground area. Washrooms were well maintained, but the rest of the park needs investment. Boardwalk trail in disrepair, historic sugar mill - not accessible, but looks like they are trying to renovate... More

Very Nice park to just chill out. It was very clean and had most everything you need to enjoy the day at the park, picnic tables, covered areas, beach, dock, parking, bathrooms and showers. Very enjoyable day.

They don't charge much, but with so much in Mandeville that's free, why go to this park? And the staff at the entrance are rude and unhelpful. Skip this and go to the Trace or the Lake for free.
