We decided to take an mc ride to this park. Very scenic with a nice little lake for kayaks, a pool and numerous picnic spots. Lots of people walking their dogs! Very nice park! If we lived closer I would frequent it for sure!

Rolling hills, pretty lake, plenty of wild life (if you look) and stunning landscapes. Great place to be in all four seasons.

Nice CG host, well patrolled and very clean. Didn't use the day use area but it looked nice. Very expensive firewood that's a pain to access at the store/pool. Bring in some wood from outside the park respecting the firewood rules for distance. Nice lake,...More

The park is a great place for a family reunion picnic/outing ! Reserved the pavilion by the lake .... great area to eat, wander about (hike), rent boats ... just enjoy the outdoors. This review is limited to the waterfront area .... the lakeside pavilion....More

In this area, bears are a reality. As a hiker, you must always be aware of your surroundings and movement at a distance. Never try to get a better look or go near a cub.

I have never stayed there. I'd call the park. I live two miles away from it.

Unfortunately I cannot answer that. I am local to the park and I don't camp there.
