This is a really nice State Park! The restrooms and showers in the camping area are top notch. They appear to be freshly renovated and are kept clean. The swimming area is really nice too. They have a little convenience store that serves hamburgers and hot dogs along with ice creams and drinks. There's plenty of area in the grass and on the beach to lay out and just enjoy the summer days. My only negative for this state park is that the campsites are really close together. I believe these campsites usually stay full, so you don't get the feeling of being out in nature. We stayed two nights in a tent. All we heard each night was the sound of RV air conditioning units around us.

Loved it. Very clean. Plenty of room. Campground is clean, sites are a little close to each other. The only reason not 5 stars is because you have to drive back and forth to the swim area. I'm not a site developer by any means, but it appeared to have plenty of acreage to get the sites closer to the park area. All and all great place!

Ehh, What's up Doc?

Really beautiful. The lake is a nice place to grill out and let the kids swim since it's so close the the picnic tables. Also good for hiking if you love nature.

The camp ground is not near the water, you have to drive to it. You have to park on the hill in the parking lot and walk down through the beach to rent a boat. The camp ground has fallen tree debris right next to the camp site . The sites are not large enough to be able to get comfortable in . If you have kids watch the drop offs. On the good side it's quiet, no mosquitos ,bathrooms are clean ,staff is friendly. It's the design of the camp ground. All this beautiful space and nothing is easily accessible .

Beautiful park with tons of things to do. We stayed in a cabin, which they have about thirty of. There are also camper sites, yurts, pavilions, tent areas and just day parking. There were many trails, diverse in skill and in scenes with great sites like Waterfalls, dams, rock formations, and lakes. The lakeside beach area has a pavilion that would be great for family gathering or birthday parties with a nearby jungle gym. They rent canoes and paddle boats here too. The cabin has two sets of bunk beds and a double in two separate bedrooms. We were fine with our family of a young four kids. The kitchen had everything that we needed, and they even stocked linens and some paper products for us. Most parks don't do that. Overall we were very happy and will be returning here again.
