  • First time staying here and we are really impressed. One of the nicest State Parks we've ever stayed in. Everything is well maintained and contact with the staff was above expectations. Very nice.....  more »
  • We only stayed at campground one night but the lake was large and the sunset was lovely. There is a nice boat ramp and the rv sites are huge!  more »
  • Great staff, clean bathrooms and sites. Wonderful atmosphere. Highly recommend if your looking for a place to get away and take the family camping.
  • Very nice swimming area for the kids, great barbecue grills, everyone was nice, the grass was mowed, and I didn’t see any bugs that bit us at all. They have canoes and kayakes for rent which are fun. Had a great time!
