My husband and I enjoyed some glamping at pampered camping. The tent was well appointed and about 15 feet square. The fireplace was a nice touch. We ordered a bundle of firewood which lasted us about 3 hours. The bed was comfortable and we had no problems at all with bugs or Mosquitos in the tent.

This is a very nice park where you can go for the day or stay for a week or two. The property was given to the people of Washington by a wealthy benefactor who lived there a hundred years ago. They kept all the old growth trees they could and it shows. If you only get to visit one park... More

People everywhere. Only come here if you have a bunch of kids and have given up on the idea of privacy.

Nice variety of trails that are just right for an easy hour or two of walking. There is a campground, beach areas with concession stands, restrooms with showers, picnick tables and boat rentals. Enjoyable visit.

Wonderful safe swimming area. Went to YMCA camp there as a child. Beautiful old growth evergreens. Lots of picnic tables nestled among the trees and along the shore. Best place yet for Fourth of July picnic and family reunion. Restful, peaceful, restorative.

We had a family reunion at the Environmental Learning Center inside the park. It was the perfect location for a big gathering. They have a great commercial kitchen with all the dishes, pots & pans & utensils you might need. There is access to Deep Lake (which is actually a very shallow lake). 8 canoes, 4 paddle boards, a row... More

It's an OK park. We camped there many years ago but sites are not private. Too much traffic in the camping area by day users. Facilities are basic and sometimes not clean. The lake is picturesque and is a popular swimming spot. Fishing is ok but you must have a boat, no fish around the dock or swimming area.

Let me start by saying that the location is excellent. Very large park, great lake and plenty of activities, they had an small amphitheater that hosted movies. However, as camping goes, people are right next to each other and there was no privacy. I agree during the day and right up to 10pm it is quite loud. We had people... More

There are plenty of snakes in the water here, but otherwise this is a great place to go have a relaxing picnic with the family or friends. Just be sure that you pick up your trash when you leave! Leave it nice for someone else to enjoy.

The trails are well maintained and easy to get around. Just need a discover pass. We had a great time.
