“Great Park!”
Reviewed October 8, 2012

Beautiful Park, Friendly staff, firewood for sale right on location, rained a bit when we went but still very fun. The hike to the beach is fun until you encounter the stairs of doom, (Very steep stairs leading down) but there was two places to rest so it wasn't terrible. A lot of daddy long legged spiders, but they didn't bother anyone. Really wish it didn't rain so we could of checked out more trails. Hiked to the pond by our campsite and to the beach. Hoping next time we can check out some of the more extensive trails.

“If you like bald eagles”
Reviewed September 25, 2012

A beautiful place for bird watching and relaxing. The state park cabins are real comfortable, with fireplaces, a nice kitchen and deck outside. Went after Labor Day, so the pool was closed. The shore line is protected and quiet. The is a short hike to the other beach to look for fossilized shark teeth. Good trip for kids. We saw a LOT of bald eagles. The park itself is well-run with a lot of activities like hiking, campfires, animal tracks, movie night (outside) etc. Would definitely go back. I think it's best to go before or after the high season (before Memorial Day or after Labor Day)

“Beautiful Park”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

Although we did not spend a lot of time in the park, it looked like it would be a great place to walk or hike. Also had a really nice large pool.

“A great get away.”
Reviewed September 2, 2012

We have stayed in the cabins several times and they are always clean. You have plenty of privacy. The cabins are great for families because of their size and each one has its own bathroom. Pets are also allowed so you don't have the extra hassle of having to have your pets boarded. There is also a charcoal grill available at each cabin and kitchen with ful size appliances. Cabins also have heat/AC and fireplaces. The grounds are graet! There are nature trails, beach areas, picnic areas and a large pool. There is plenty to keep you occupied during your visit.
