The park hosts and DNR go all out. Great family atmosphere for safe, fun and outdoor activity. The campsites are spaced out far enough that you're not on top of your neighbors, but not so far apart that you have to walk a mile to the bathrooms, playgrounds or beeches. I would like to have caught more fish, but that's... More

The day use part of the park includes a beach & swimming area and hiking trails. There are also lots of picnic areas and areas for shore fishing. There is also a boat launch ramp for their no-wake lake. Camp sites are typical State Park site with electrical power. I know they have one or two cabins to rent but... More

Have been here a lot of times if you want grass for tents your better off trying to get a lot in the front of the campground the back has alot of dirt areas. Have nice trails around the lake and thru the woods. The swim area has Lil beach. If your fishing you might catch a nice bass but... More

My parents used to take me camping here. I have very fond memories of this park with my family, aunts, uncles, and cousins. I have camped in a tent as well as in the cabin (with electricity). I think the price of the cabin is a little steep at $80 per night, but it is right on the water (tall... More

Overall, this is a very nice park. We camped there over the 4th of July weekend and really enjoyed ourselves. In fact, we're booked again for the second week of August! The north section of the campground is just shy of being perfect. There is a camp store that has ice and firewood along with some of the little necessities... More

The best part of this park is the three decorated Halloween weekends (the first three of October) in the campground(s). The campgrounds are very large sites; with trees, and good views. I have never camped here, but bike thru it often during the Halloween weekends to see the crazy decorated campsites! This is a MUST do if you live in... More

It was a nice state park, lots of trails to hike and a big lake to fish. Not too many bites from the fish. Can rent a row boat or launch your own. Camp store and small playground. Beach was clean but far from south end of campground, which is where we camped. Had a good time overall.

While looking for a campground with only a few weeks notice many of our favorites were full and stumbled onto this one as many lots were still available at this location, especially in the south campground. Upon reserving our lot, the reservation system stated our lot was grassy. Upon arriving, we found it to be 25% grass and 75% dirt.... More
