“Great staff, nice sites, beautiful location!”
Reviewed July 17, 2012 via mobile

This was a nice, quiet campsite. The sites are fairly large and wooded. My GPS told me I had reached my destination about two miles before I actually did, but there were road signs that helped us find the way with no problem. The staff is wonderful and very informative! They gave us great tips on where to eat and what to do.
While the showers certainly weren't dirty, they were somewhat primitive. The shower heads had to be operated by a string and only worked as long as you were pulling that string. While this is not a problem for seasoned campers, families with small children might find this a nuisance.

Reviewed June 17, 2012

Three hiking friends and myself made the hike along the lake's farside, up the mountain, along the top and returned to the parking area (Sep 2011). This is about 8 or 9 miles some of which required bushwhacking and plenty of tics were grabbing onto us, so hikers beware. That said, this is a hidden gem of a lake and park. I recently visited (June 2012) it with Mom and we had great time sitting in the boat docking area at the east end of lake. Plenty of parking with benches (some under a shed) and a clean restroom nearby made it easy for an elderly person to enjoy a close-up experience of nature and the lake. The nearby shop which sells bait, also has sodas, snacks and the like. We'll come back for sure.

Everything about the park, activities and accomodations was wonderful. Showers are clean, great bike & hiking trails, and the lake/swimming area is well supervised. The historic town is a great time, and I suggest touring the prison.The only comment I have is that their directions need to be much more clear for those who are not familiar with the area.
