  • Great for hiking! There are awesome trails that go around the lake. There is also camping and a there is a cafe on the lake with great food and icecream. Love spending summer days here  more »
  • Great place. Will be really nice when construction is done. Can not wait till horse campground and trails open again. Boat rental is reasonable price and very fun. Riding your bike is great too. Trails all over. Camp Grounds are very nice. But no water hook ups. There is electric hook ups and showers. Showers need up dating a bit . And floor drains need to be cleaned, they do not drain well. We did have a nice time here.
  • We had a great time camping and hiking here! The staff were nice and helpful, and the park itself was beautiful. I wish we had more time to explore it. The only downside was that one of the bathrooms did not have hot water, and the sinks didn't work, but the staff were up front about that when we made our reservation and seemed concerned about fixing the issue.
