Nice park

The camping is pretty good. The pads are spaced far enough apart to have a little privacy. The primitive camping path was pretty long though and not wagon friendly. The park... read more

It is small but very enjoyable. We frequent often since it is pretty close. The staff is very on top of their job, rules are rules. The park is clean and maintained. I do like that camping is on the other side of the lake away from day use facilities, a little more peaceful. Camp sites are spacious and nice... More

The camping is pretty good. The pads are spaced far enough apart to have a little privacy. The primitive camping path was pretty long though and not wagon friendly. The park was clean and there is an abundance of great fishing spots. They offer kayak classes that are really good as well. This is a great place for a family... More

Very simple little park with a small fishing lake and a few camp sites. The trails are unnoteworthy - yes, it is a word.

What an incredible park! Stay at camp site 20 or 22 for water-side camping. Superclean bathrooms and tons of privacy. The folks working there spectacularly professional. Visit the camp host for firewood and def purchase pinecones for a fire starter. It saved an hour's worth of toil.

We camped in our pop-up there and really enjoyed it! Saw lots of wildlife - deer, raccoons, and tons of bunnies. All the sites are very private with a lot of bush/forest in between. There are only four sites on the water itself. One of the campsites was even fully handicap accessible (this was not on the water). Trails are... More

Put in my kayak here this morning and really appreciated the sand launch area dedicated to kayaks, also I was able to join in on a kayak safety course which was very well done on a beginner level, highly recommend.

Purtis Creek is somewhat close to where we live so we decided to take a new travel trailer out for its almost-maiden voyage. I like to bring my dog and hike the trails here even when I am not camping. I have camped here in the past, but not in quite a while. Its a small park and only 4... More

This was our first visit to the park, while volunteering during the KidFish event. Noticed a couple of things: - there didn't seem to be trashcans out and about, which we found odd for a park - there were a lot of ant beds (assume due to recent rain), which was unfortunate for a large kid event Aside from that,...

This state park has great camping spots and a great picnic area by the water. It's great for day use if you live near by or great for a weekend trip. My family has enjoyed many trips here.

Just got back from spending an extended weekend at Purtis Creek SP. Very small park. We have a 32', 3 slide outs, 5th Wheel. Most all of the pads were a little short but we made do. Most of the sights were already taken as Campers came down and chose the sight they wanted and put their slip of paper... More
