  • Nicely spread-out state park to enjoy camping, fishing, boating, hiking and so much more. There are plenty of facilities and well-maintained roads. Maybe a few more play areas for the children...

  • This park is nice. Tons if places to dip your toes in the water. There are tons of hiking and biking trails. You can paddle board, canoe and float. There were a lot of people fishing. The water was cold, but felt great! There are a ton of camping spots all around the water and some have power. I will definitely be going up there again to stay a few nights with the family.
  • This is a beautiful state park! We stayed in JH2, a new section. The site was very long and spacious and we were able to level fairly easily although we noticed that some of the sites were pretty sloped. Our view was amazing and the walks we took on the trails within the park were great. They do not have a good after-hours check in process. It's a good thing I had written down which site we had reserved because I would not have known where to go otherwise. We plan to return to this beautiful park someday.
