We went camping over there and stayed on camping site #20. The staff was very friendly at the register and the park is ok. Campsite review: A little far away from the restrooms. The restrooms were ok and showers were with hot water (no issues). There is no place to wash dishes or clean lots of dishes. I was disappointing... More

My family and I try to stay at, at least one new park each year. This year it was Sleepy Hollow and it did not disappoint. The park was clean, we had a nice sized site (love the pictures on the State website), clean beach and great weather. I saw the bathrooms get cleaned multiple times per/day. Unfortunately there are... More

Love this park. Grew up here and worked here back when it was a larger park but it still has a lot of great attributes. Wonderful hiking, boat launch, and camping.

We enjoyed our time here at Sleepy Hollow. We were on site #30. Our 35 ft power cord was the perfect length. No additional cord was needed. The majority of sites were also wooded and secluded. Even some of the sites right next to the bathroom had a good barrier of trees so that you do not feel like you... More

Beautiful campground with asphalt pads and lots of grass. Trees and shrubs provide lots of privacy if you choose those sites. We had three families camping together...two of us had adjoining sites with a huge grassy area for the kids (and adults) to play ball and ladder golf. Nice beach and picnic area with a large bath house.

I was introduced to Sleepy Hollow through an affiliation with MSU. We talked extensively to the park manager and I loved the energy here. It's a great place to go and get away to camp even if you are local because the bonus is you don't have to sell your first-born for gas money to get there.

I didn't camp there, just used the mountain bike trails. They are quite long and a lot of fun, highly recommended. Camp sites seemed nice and from what I was told reasonable on pricing.
