Relaxin' on the Lake

The park is a beautiful place to spend time on the water. Plenty of picnic tables, play areas for the kids, clean restrooms, and gorgeous views.

Been here forever, the 4th of July fireworks are always a treat. Buy a season pass so you can go to other parks, best value.

My family and I visited the park this winter and really enjoyed it. My husband ice fished and my daughter and I spent time hiking in the snow and taking photographs of the beautiful landscape.

You can reserve a spot if you see one you like. Both the north and south ends are nice. There are free games and other items to use while you and even fishing gear while you are in the park. If you have a park permit entry is free. It is also a good place to have a bike and... More

This park was fun for our family of 4 boys. The beach was very clean with a nice sandy swim area. Our campsite was a nice size. We loved riding our bikes through the park. The only downside we found was that the dirt at the campsite was 'dirty'. We swept about 5 times a day in the camper. I... More

This park has a great beach and great staff. I do wish the park and volleyball net was closer to the water.

Very nice state park! We camped here and loved the large sites and great beach. Very quiet and even though they were full, you didn't feel crowded!! I must say the north shower houses are in dire need of an upgrade!!! Dark, dank & a shower head that would exfoliate the toughest skin!!!!! It was a warm shower so that... More

This was our 1st trip to this park, and we were very pleased. The sites were spacious and nicely wooded for privacy . There are 3 bathroom buildings, 1 of which is very modern, the others were older but clean and the water in the showers were hot. The park has a very nice trail along the waters edge, with... More
