  • This is an excellent place to bring the family and see the sights. So many trails to hike around and some really great fishing spots. If you are just passing through make sure to stop to stretch your legs and take in the scenery. The park resort has a snack shack that offers hot food as well as ice cream and coffee options.
  • I absolutely love Sun Lakes. This was my first ever camping trip. This place is family friendly. Great rates for campsites. Everyone here greeted you with a positive attitude. All of the families were nice and basically looked out for all of the children in the immediate area. I truly felt safe in the outdoors They do movie nights which is awesome sauce!!! We had a blast!!! I will be visiting again in the near future.
