  • Beautiful state park. Roads are great. Staff is awesome. Hiking trails show variety of plants and trees. Farm with animals. Love the houses. Clean bath houses. We were in Campground #2. Hosts were nice. We have a 40ft. Fifth wheel with 5 slides and had no difficulty. We will be back.
  • We rented a cottage and it was like staying in a hotel! Beds were made perfectly, bed linens and utility linens were ready for use, satellite TV was a surprise and all wrapped in a beautiful cabin. One of the best parts is that you could look at the map and see how close you were to other parts of camp, but the location of the cottages provided a quiet and peaceful experience. Definitely will return! If you're looking for a wonderful State Park experience, this is the park to visit!
