We spend three days at this state park over Labor Day weekend. Very pretty park, very wooded and the lake was great for kyaking or canoeing. Not a very large lake but nice calm water. This park has a swimming pool on the day side of the lake, and for discounted fee overnight campers can swim there. It also has a small, very basic camp store where you can get ice; canned goods; firewood; fishing items and miscellaneous other camping items. You would be better off going to one of the local stores if you are looking for variety or to do a full shop.
We stayed in the Hemlock Hills loop, we had two sites; one small site and one large. We stayed in 71 and 72, four people with 3 tents and it we just fit comfortably. However, sites# 69 or 67 seemed to be the only ones in this loop that were level and with more usable space. Sites are very rocky, and in some cases the tent pads or usable space were small ,although the lots were large - however, we have stayed at more confined parks so we didn't have too much of an issue with this. Some sites have parking space for 2 vehicles.
Bathroom was small, but cleaned twice a day and there never seemed to be a long wait for the shower. Water is set at one temperature and starts out very hot...!! The wateris kept running by constantly pushing in a "button", but it's something one can live with. Toilets are flushable.
Rangers were very pleasant and helpful, they do patrol regulary especially around quite time and on Weekends, but they seemed a little lenient with several other noisy sites above us on the primitive and group areas.
Fishing didn't seem very good that weekend. Take note that campers have their own launching area and a rack where you can leave your kayak or canoe at the launch area - if you bring some kind of locking device and you won't have to keep trucking the rafts to the launch area. Roads are paved, so it is easy to navigate your way through this park and to your sites. Bugs didn't seem to be a problem with the exeption of bees.
There is a small concession stand on the far side of the horshoe shaped lake where the day campers launch, you can also rent kyaks or canoes here. A short walk from this concession/rental area up a small incline in between the trees and rocks will put you at the site where Frances Slocum was kept on the first night of being abducted by Indians. Unfortunately over the last 150 years or so, the shelf or rock overhang that would have protected them from the elements, has since collapsed so the site is only marked by an orange mark on a tree. It was still interesting to visit. This whole area is basically a peninsula that juts out into the lake and there are several other types of hiking trails in this area.
Overall, we did not dislike our stay here but because there are so many other parks we plan on visiting, we probably wont' make it back to this park in the near future.
