The park is lovely. The Rangers are wonderful and accessible. Camp sites are clean and range from tent camper to cabin for stays. Love the lake and best place to relax. Nice sidewalks throughout park and hiking trails galore. Perfect for little ones and trike to bike riders.

This park is the best in the area for keeping everyone occupied with something to do. The beach area with the fort to swim out to was definitely a favorite. But also they have paddle boards, kayaks, and a Jon boat available for rental! We always go here several times each summer. Love this place and they also have lots... More

Came to hungry mother for a camping trip. And this got off to a "wonderful" start. Made reservations weeks earlier and explained length, size of my camper. (35 foot 5th wheeler) plus a long bed 4 door f350 to boot. I arrive they give me my camping placards and directions (while standing beside my camper). First I should say they... More

Beautiful park and incredible swimming area! You think you are back in the 50's :) Wish I had a chance to stay in a cabin on site and eat at their diner. Drinks and sodas available at swimming area.

We love staying in these quaint cabins. Family be warned there is no TV. They need to wake up and give this service to young family's. Director step up and bring this facility into the 20th century . Even 21st.

The cabins are well kept and very clean. Linens are provided. There are 2 cabin loops. We stayed in the loop at the end of the road above the first campground loop. Cabins are 2 bedroom with separate kitchen and living/eating area. There is a working fireplace for those chilly days. Bring extra cooking utensils. There are some but an... More
