The camping area was kept very clean The site were perhaps a bit small and there is no tree cover because the campground was probably built less than 10 years ago and the trees still need to grow. My kids loved the swimming, so we just dealt with the openness.

no trees was our issue. we camped and our septic hose would not reach where the hook up is placed, so we had to go out and purchase an extension. part of the adventure, i guess. there's no privacy at the campsites, so if you want some peace and space, find another campground. we would not return here.

Markin Glen, is a small park for camping and many other things to do, Swimming, with beach, walking trails and a playground for the kids. Very nice place for camping, very close to town but it seems far out, and not expensive at all.

Awesome facilities. Nice and VERY CLEAN. Great for families and bicycles. Walking trails and fishing too. Wished we would've known no kyacks. Park ranger was nice nice enough to share where but it didn't share that anywhere. Look forward to our next visit.

They have a wonderful modern campground. Great paved trails to walk or ride bikes, lots of playgrounds. The ponds are fun to fish and explore. The rates are great.

The County does a good job of keeping this park up. It is worth the visit if you are in the area. The area is nice and wooded. It would be a nice area to go hiking in.

This County Park is close to town but helps you relax and feel miles away. There are walking paths, fishing, swimming, camping, playgrounds and the amenities are wonderful. There are two sections to the park, across Westnedge Avenue from one another. I believe the other side is mostly for picnics, etc. Very clean and well-maintained.

1st time to Markin Glen Park - Church picnic. Perfect place for an event like that. Plenty of room to set up food tables, places for people to eat, large area for games and even room for a bouncy castle. There is a fee to enter and the bathrooms are clean and user friendly.

This is a very well-designed and well maintained facility. They have a very nice swimming beach on one of the two lakes, and fishing for bass and sunfish is good in both of the lakes. There's a pair of swans that mate and nest here every year, and add to the beauty of the lakes. The campsites are all fully... More
