Kooser State park Reviews
This was our first trip since upgrading from tent camping to motor home camping. The bathhouse was very clean with warm showers. Camp site 12 was very easy for me to level up which was great since I..... more »
Very pretty little park with quite a few pull through sites as well as back in rv sites. The campsites are spacious and most have some shade except for the sites directly in front of the shower house. The campsites on the outermost circle have quite a bit of privacy and are really quite beautiful, especially those along the creek. We stayed in site 10 which is right next to the creek and under some huge pine trees...very relaxing! Would definitely go there again!! The only slight drawback is sometimes during the day a bit of traffic noise from the nearby road.
A very nice family environment to camp. Beautiful lake and trails. We go here every chance we get. Recently renovated with a nice playground.
