Worth the trip

Many of the sites have a view of the water. The sites are well separated leaving a lot of room for the kids and walking the dog as well.

There is a nice beach but no lifeguard. Lots of shade trees as well.

Great place for boaters and kayakers. There are multiple docks to set at and a put in road…

Beautiful state park, remote and quiet.

We had a great time. Bring the bug spray, sunscreen and plenty of exention cords. The campground needs investment as majority of the sites are narrow with difficult positions for hooking up and leveling, make sure you pay attention. To each site description. The Full hookup/Ada sites are new, the…

Nice family run campground!

Nice campground surrounded by forest. They have a pond for fishing and another pond for swimming with nice Sandy beach. They also put out bouncy houses for the kids at no extra cost. You can rent golf carts which is helpful since the campground is fairly large, the front and back sites are…

Decent place

Staff as always been very friendly, sites are very spacious, there are trails for hiking, a playground and a beach. Only negatives are no showers and not much shade unless you get a site on the edge of the woods

Great Camp and Fish Spot

Had a wonderful weekend at Kendall. Have heard it can be hard to get a reservation, and now I know why.

Most the spots are spacious and tree covered. Paved and gravel sights are the norm. Some sites looked to be 100 feet deep which offered great privacy. There are many buddy sites that would…

Nice little campground

We camped here over the weekend. The campground is not very big, but the sites have electricity, water, a fire pit, a lantern pole, picnic bench, and a bearbox. Some of the sites are not very private or have much shade. Number 1 to 9 seem to be the best spots. Some of the campsites have also…

Best State Park yet.

Spent a partly rainy weekend at this park. They have so many things to do but we just enjoyed watching our son play and enjoy the playground and sandbox by the dam with another child. It was a peaceful campground probably because of the rain but it but it was quiet and nice. The sites are…

Nice Campground

I stayed here with my husband and two friends and we loved it. We planned to hike at Cummins Falls State Park so the campground was in a great location. Only having to drive a minute was fantastic. The bathhouse was clean and the showers were the nicest I've ever used. Single walk in showers with…

Relaxing and low key

Nice clean and well maintained campground. Paved roadways great for biking and walking. Some spaces and turns would be tight for larger rigs. Playground has red clay dirt, so that was a bit messy. We did have an issue with our electric pole showing a fault on both the 30 and 50 amp plug. We…

Quiet and relaxing

We spent two nights here in late March. We ended up being unlucky and having 7 inches of rain while we were there. Fortunately, it came in waves and mostly rained overnight. The park is very nice. The campground is pretty nice. It looks like the cabins are the main draw of this park. 

Pros: It's…

Good place to camp

Nice camper spots. Tent spots are in hilly areas so be ready to hike up to the bath houses. Bath houses are old but clean. Overall good place to camp.
