  • This is a great place to camp. We arrived on Tuesday late afternoon and our site was ready for us. We were in site #44. Easy to back in, but some we heard weren’t so easy. Met great people and used....  more »

  • Great state park accommodations with a rustic feel. It was a great place to rest after a day long meeting, with views and access to hiking trails. There's even an on site restaurant for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Other amenities include a pool, ping pong, corn hole and tennis courts. If that's not enough to entertain the kids, the park also has paddle boats and miniature golf.
  • Beautiful. Most of the staff very nice. Love the bartender. The waitress very helpful and friendly in the restaurant. Registration person not helpful at all. Did not learn about specials until they were all over and we wasted our money in town. So for everyone staying here they have happy hour 430 to 630 with 1/2 price appetizers that are to die for we had to pay full price and they were totally worth it. Homeade beer cheese with pretzels warmed oh so good. Hot wings that were served with fries hot off the grill.Oh so tasty. Mostly a bourbon bar but had a wide variety of other stuff and the tender would make any recipe you gave him. He was great. So all in all a great experience. I would recommend top floor as the people above walked the floors all night but the rooms were 100% clean. No frills tho but necessaries and frills available if you needed them.. This is the first of my park adventures so stay tuned.
