We had a ton of fun on the rented pedal boats and paddle boards and our dog had the best time! The only missing star is for the flies. Ugh. SO. MANY. FLIES. But we'll still be happy to come back sometime!

Great attraction for anyone who appreciates landscape and vistas. Well worth the long drive. Pay close attention to directional arrows on signs.

The bottomless lakes are awesome. The water is clean and clear. There is a nice beach with lifeguards on duty. Nice park for hiking.

We were blown away by how chilly and refreshing the water was and how clear it was - around 10 foot visibility. Full lifeguard staff, it's a great local's place that is welcoming to traveler's too!

The Lea Lake camping area is beautiful. Lots of walking space including a wetlands trail. Swimming and picnicking is available to campers and day users of the State Park. Driving through the Park provides many awesome views. Park host and staff are friendly and helpful. RV sites are very level and not too close; some are full hookup. Night sky... More
