Small state park with few camping spots. Found a little trail that leads to a bench by the water. Great place to meditate or pray and get away from it all.

We enjoyed a short visit to this wonderful and peaceful park. Campsites were level and well maintained. Staff was very helpful and informative. We camped in a 5th wheel with plenty of space. We will return for a longer visit!

This is a good place to camp swim or have a birthday party or reunion. It's clean and has plenty of picnic tables and shade trees.

Checked out this park with some on my friends when we had nothing to do. It is a great scenery and it has pretty cool trails. Great place to camp and it is pretty small so you can't get lost here.

Decent fishing, very clean, friendly staff. I would recommend this place for a family outing or just going to fish

When your riding and you'd like to ride through the park for a whole 5 minutes it's a travesty to have to pay full price to enter.

This park has a very nice small lake. There are plenty of fish jumping, rental boats, a fishing pier, a small beach area and a boat launch. The water is pretty clean and there is no trash around the shore. The park also has plenty...More
