  • Smaller then some of the parks I visited but nice. Clean bathrooms. A 5 mile simple hike around the lake, mostly prairie but some forest and an additional @1mile trail. Nice lake for fishing or kayaking. No swimming. No beach. Also has on site boat rental and small restaurant
  • Group camping area is fairly isolated from the rest of the campground. Does have one nice new fire ring. These are dry campsites and need to bring in water. So be prepared with containers. Couldn't find any suitable access to lake for fishing(primary reason for our trip) Had to drive to main park for kids to fish.
