With beautifully wooded picnic areas and a lake for swimming/wading it is excellent for families with small children. There is a narrow sand beach backed up by a shaded grassy area. The shade is as always is dependent on the location of the sun. The beach area is facing west so the shade gets shorter in the afternoon and evening.... More

For any RV traveler, don't be fooled into reserving a space in the campground expecting to relax in the adjacent lake on weekends between Memorial Day & Labor Day. Your visit will be marred with the ridiculously high number of non-English speaking crowds that begin entering the day use area before 8:00am. By mid-morning on the weekends, the park is... More

Since it is a lot about the lake it is more of a summer park. We had fun and the park employees were great. It was smaller than I expected but how much room do you really need to have fun.

This is a State Park, it has two areas, a day use area with a lake and beach area, also a boat launch for non powered boating. Weekends are very busy in the day use area, it is at times closed because it's filled. There is a nice camping area with 4 camping loops, only one loop hazes power (Cedar... More

Lovely park, beach, and campground. Mostly Flat but short parking Spurs for the trailer sites with electric hookup. Partly shaded. Secure campground with a code activated hate. Convenient to Antietam battlefield.

We camped here for two nights. My family reserved two sites. We had our two dogs with us, as well. While the scenery in the surrounding area is beautiful, we agreed that we would probably not stay at this campground again. We found the environment to be too strict, and I promise you, we are not rowdy people in the... More

We stayed in the Cedar Loop of the campground on a Sunday night, so there were just a few other campers, which made it nice and quiet. Every site was completely level with a picnic table, fire pit with cooking grate, and electric hookup. If you want to watch TV, make sure to get a spot without too many trees.... More

The campsites are pretty although some are quite steep while backing a camper into the spot. Very few have electricity and water. This is a heavy use park so be prepared for lots of noise.

We enjoyed a delightful weekend of camping on the Cedar loop. The campsites are nicely spaced apart and not too close and pets are allowed if kept on a leash. There are numerous miles of great wooded trails that are used for hiking and mountain biking. One of the trails wraps partway around the pretty lake offering lots of nice... More
