We were staying in the area so visited this state park. It was considerably smaller than most state parks we have visited, but it was right on Grand Lake and had a nice nature trail. We generally like to hike but there aren’t a lot of trails at this park. What WAS there was enjoyable. There are a couple of observation towers that were good for just sitting and watching birds. One unusual experience we had was running across a persimmon tree that had dropped a lot of its fruit on the ground. It was a rare find. Visitor center was closed due to a doctor’s appointment but we were there during the week in off season so understandable.

We arrived at the campground after dark and were unfamiliar with the layout and found the campground host by his campfire. He politely escorted us to our spot (very much appreciated) and the next day got firewood from him as well. This guy is a great ambassador for our state! The campground was clean and the bath houses were well kept given the busy holiday weekend and the noise was kept to a minimum after hours. This is a great place to camp and enjoy the lake from the shoreline.

We traveled to the Bernice Area at Grand Lake the weekend of Mother’s Day. We were in sites 1, 2, and 3. This is our collective list of pros and cons: Pros: - The Nature Center was cool - there is a huge Flemish rabbit, Tortoise, and blind raccoon in the building you can visit with. There is a coyote outside but he looked kinda sad. - the nature trail was also a fun short walk. - the campground host was really nice. He visited us a couple times and was very chatty. Cons: - super noisy - REALLY close to the road. Traffic was really loud and annoying. - the sites are set up weird. The fire pits were right next to the road so we basically sat right next to traffic coming in to the park. - it wasn’t full hookup and there was almost zero shade in our sites. We likely won’t visit this campsite again unless we specifically planned to spend most of our time fishing from a boat.
