  • It's clean, full of places to camp out for the day, easy to get to the water (where there is a safe swim area). $5 parking for the day, but it's worth it. The bathrooms are pretty nice, the lawn is kept up, and there is plenty of both shade and sun depending on your needs. Dogs are allowed only in designated places- not down by the swimming area- and it is monitored by the sheriff's office. They're super cool and nice to have around though. The only downside was the amount of algae... the water is literally bright green with it, so if you're sensitive at all be careful.
  • Beautiful well maintained State Park. Campsites clean and neat. Restrooms and showers excellent. Trees, shade, we had nice and considerate neighbors. It was a wonderful return to camping for our families. At least three separate camping sites around the lake. We also rented a pontoon boat and cruised the large lake. Nice to be on the water again. Nice selection of boat rentals available. Incredible variety of rock formations and vistas. Bring your camera and a dry bag. We cruised and stopped along the way for about four hours. Leaves starting to fall and we plan on returning frequently. Excellent location.
