This state park has some of the best campsites anywhere. Not all, but most sites are very cozy and many trees between the campsites. I don’t think there are any pull through, they are all back in I believe. All are electric sites but not...More

Was pretty busy place but we combined kayaking with a beach to suntan. People were family oriented. It was a nice place to spend a Sunday.

First time there, we really liked our site, it's position and would book it again. We liked hearing the bullfrogs near the pond. The site was private like the other sites as each site was surrounded by trees. It was nice and wide to trailer...More
