We stayed one night while traveling through. The campground was well maintained as well as the beach and marina area. Campsites ranged from poor to excellent. The outer and further ring were in better shape (newer, cleaner and more level) than the first ring, which seemed to be quite older. Some of the campsites had their living area behind the... More

Had a great time camping with family for a week here. The showers were very clean the whole time we were there and always had hot water! I would suggest choosing a site on the outer roads, those were level and made of concrete. We stayed at a site on the inner road and although it was nice and shady,... More

I have only been once, but I had a nice picnic on the picnic tables. I did not really notice much about the park. I was in and out for a quick lunch and that is it. Ha.

This is one of the nicest state parks we have visited. Nice green views, long level campsites with electric for RV 's, clean restrooms and camp hosts who went out of their way to accommodate us. Finally, the free WiFi worked!

When you get to the actual lake, there is plenty of parking. The marina shop has scoops of ice cream, fountain sodas and many fishing supplies with a wooden deck right outside to take in the scenery. They also sell fish pellets to feed lots of catfish right outside. They have grills for cooking. A section off area for swimming.... More

We stumbled across this little piece of heaven last summer and can't get enough! Planning a trip back in 2 weeks! We love the walk-in tent sights because we can pull our boat right up to any of them you don't have to drive back and forth to the marina to use your boat, it is docked right off your... More

My wife and I walked some trails that led up to the lake and eventually ended up at the beach! We had a great time, too bad the weather changed on us or we would have stayed longer...

This is a great place for a family outing. The beach is well kept with updated picnic tables and shelters. Also a great place for camping.

This was a very nice state park. My partner and I went camping for Memorial Day weekend. We each bought a 2 day fishing license to relax and fish a little. Well relax we didn't. We were constantly being stopped by conservation agents and park rangers. They kept checking us for a fishing license. We had to stop fishing and... More
