This is an awesome state park. The lake and forest are beautiful making this a great getaway. Camping grounds, facilities, canoe rentals, plus a great hiking trail around the lake. Dogwoods in bloom were beautiful offset by the piney woods.

My family and I have been here many times during all seasons and it's wonderful. There are many trails to hike and the trail around the lake is amazing. The are many camping options and canoe and paddle boat rentals available. Give it a visit and you won't be disappointed.

This is a very beautiful park, especially in spring. Wonderful camping sites around the lake, miles of hiking trails, friendly staff. A great place to stay for a few days

Lots of camping spots and some of the tent spots are right on the water with excellent tent pads and view of the lake. Although there are many, many sites for RVs I find them... More

The park is amazing, well kept and clean. Lot's of activities (fishing, canoe's pedal boats) to do for everyone. Would definitely recommend for a camping experience.

I have gone here quite a few times since my move at the start of this month. I really love the trails and the scenery. The rangers are very nice.

We have been to this park several times and always enjoy it. RV campsites are layed out well, level, and spaced to provide a little privacy. Bike and hiking trails are well maintained. Great peaceful park with friendly rangers.
