  • Beautifully taken care of State Park. Great sites, clean bathhouses, friendly camp hosts, rangers helpful and friendly, special treat of bear passing on nearby road, peaceful and well kept up trails. Dog friendly too. We enjoyed kayaking, hiking, biking and just enjoying the peace around the park. Signage was everywhere and water for filling up and two dumping stations near campground. It was our first state park and we came home and booked another trip in 2 weeks we had such a great time. After doing regular campgrounds the atmosphere of the state park is our #1 favorite now!
  • Spent labor weekend there we arrive Saturday at noon and left Monday afternoon and it was beautiful. there are so many things to do there, the camping places are very spacious and clean, the bathrooms are wonderful and very close to the campsites; the showers are clean and super hot water. they have a laundromat, they have a dishwashing sink. Everything is very close to it. the staff is very friendly the park rangers are very professionals and the rates are very economic. We paid $70 for two nights but is very worth it. The park is extremely well maintained. Drove a couple of minutes to the lake beach. And we rented row boats for $35 for 70 minutes. They also have pedaling boats,motor boats and not 100% sure if they rent kayaks as well but there sure were many kayaking in the lake. We saw the famous or infamous water snakes 🐍 although i was scared its was an unforgettable experience. On our way back to the camp site from the lake we saw a mama bear and her twin cubs. PLEASE GO THERE. it is certainly amazing and beautiful.
