Camped for 3 nights. List of disappointments include no wood for campfire, bathroom near our site "closed for the season" and a skanky beach area that park employees admitted that they would not swim at. There is a nice pool that you are supposed to pay $8 a day to use. There is nobody around to pay the fee to.... More

Coming from the Washington, DC area, I was struck by the uncrowded, relaxing vibe of this park. We were often the only ones at the beach, marina, or on the boardwalk or hiking trails. Passing two or three people was a big deal. Do not miss the marina! Renting a boat was an excellent way to admire the natural beauty.

This was our first adventure in camping so our expectation was high. The check in person was not helpful and did not provide much direction. The guy's at the Marina were very nice. Beau who was a seasoned camper there was very nice. He told us ways to get to the beach since everything was so spread out. You should... More

We camped there this 4th of July Weekend. We booked a full hookup site, which we loved, not all state parks offer water on site, let alone a full hookup! On the plus side our side although kind of small site #6 was newly renovated to be a full hookup, in addition it has a new concrete pad and new... More

We recently held a birthday/reunion event at the Punderson Manor inside the state park. What a beautiful park and great facilities. Our group had an excellent experience and we're so glad we chose this venue.

Beautiful grounds. The cabins are clean and comfortable with a/c. The food is less than mediocre...stay in a cabin and plan to cook your own meals. Service is ok...they are pleasant enough but slow and a little behind the times. No Wi-Fi in cabins. No ATM.
