Laura S. Walker State Park reviews
This was a wonderful place to RV camp. We liked the smallness of it. Got the last site so could camp in the handicap site. I can’t commend the volunteers enough. They were right on top of things... more »
Beautiful park with nice ample RV spots. There’s a nice large lake you can boat in. There’s small swimming areas and they have life vets you can borrow for the children. The cabins are closed right... more »
Small lake but nice. Plenty of activities boat rental kayak rental and much more. Diverse camp grounds from RV camping to primitive camp grounds. Also one of the more cleaner state parks I've been too. All in all a very nice place for the family to relax pets aloud as well
What an amazing place! Very clean, quiet and beautifully kept. The workers are always smiling and friendly! The lake is gorgeous and there's plenty of trees over the camping areas.
