  • First time staying here and we are really impressed. One of the nicest State Parks we've ever stayed in. Everything is well maintained and contact with the staff was above expectations. Very nice.....  more

  • We only stayed at campground one night but the lake was large and the sunset was lovely. There is a nice boat ramp and the rv sites are huge!

  • This place is gorgeous. I delivered some Amazon packages for a few customers that live up on and around the puddle of water. Can't imagine how awesome it must be in the summer
  • SD state park with an awesome trail system and a great view of the lake and slough. It's interesting how the slough is in the middle of the peninsula. The park's elevation above the lake makes for some great views, especially on the eastern edge of the park. Comparable to Oakwood Lakes, difference is there is only one lake here, no island trail, and less trails. Views are better here though.
