The hiking trail was a bit much for me, because I was super out of shape. But other than that, the scenery was so beautiful and the air smelled sweet. I saw a turtle, spider (it was HUGE) and so many ant hills (so be careful.. You have been warned). Also, there were so many of those tiny little beetles which I thought were some kind of tick.. Thank goodness they weren't.. But there were so so so many of them. They would cling on to your clothes, hair and sometimes your face. One almost flew into my mouth. Luckily, I closed it just in time.. Eeew! The lake water is dirty, so I don't recommend swimming. Kayaking/Canoeing is fine. Fishing is ok (must have fishing license) but you can't fish on the bridge (because of the pandemic, I'm assuming). Great place for family outings and small picnics. Great place to take pictures, too. No collecting wild plants/flowers and rocks are allowed in the park. What really urked me was that people weren't being considerate.. Meaning they didn't have any face masks on. Please put them on or just don't come outside. Don't spread it! That's all.

We hiked 7 mile trail this morning. It was a fairly easy trail around the lake. Unfortunately had to share it with bikers. Our dog did not appreciate that. The log fort was a surprise. This is not how I pictured it. Quite small.

We stayed two nights and it wasn’t enough! When we come back next tome we will stay a minimum of three nights so we can go and do more. The new park entrance is gorgeous, as it truly sets the ton for what’s to come. The fishing was fantastic and the water was nice and cool. We can’t wait to come back next time!!

Went fishing on it’s small lake on Thursday with my son. Never could see anything alive in the lake due to poor clarity. Lots of pollen & other stuff in lake made it look a little gruesome. We caught a fairly good size catfish (18”) in the lake but that was it. Moderate activity around the lake with plenty of campers, beach goers and other tourists hiking. It is a small but beautiful park just that the lake could use a clean-up sometime soon.

My niece needed an on-the-spot location for her wedding as her previous location fell through. Fort Yargo came to the rescue! Shelter B was perfect for our needs. At only $75, the kitchen was spacious with a huge, industrial size fridge and freezer and a massive stove and oven. We did all of the cooking ourselves and loved the fact we could put food out on the counter and then shut the windows to the kitchen. This place came with enough chairs and tables for us (up to 60) and was warm inside on a cold and rainy day. Thankfully, the weather let up just enough for her to take some beautiful photos by the lake. The rangers could not have been more accommodating and pleasant. It was a great day thanks to the park.
