Great Camping

Stayed here for three nights. All spots have plenty of shade when we walked around. Shower house and bathrooms were clean and nice. Lots of things to do such as boating, kayaking, paddle boarding, fishing and swimming. Fire pits were even nice with an attached grill grate.

Nicely shaded spots.

We stayed for two days in spot #92. Many of the spots have a good amount of room, but there are some that looked tricky to level. 92 was fine for leveling. The only downside is that the spots, while larger, are fairly open (in the area around 92). I prefer a spot that has a tucked away fire pit and table, but this worked OK for us. Bathhouses were clean and there is a great 3.75 mile paved loop around the lake if you have dogs that enjoy long walks.

Nice place to camp. Close to home

Great place to fish.kayak. Bike ride. Clean campsites and bathrooms

Wooded / shaded

Nice place to camp, all spots are shaded, but all are also back in, but no big deal. Nice quiet camp ground with newer bathroom/ showers. Has nice blacktopped walking trail around Lake around four miles long, great for bikes also. TV reception good, and wifi at 4g

normal state park

no water ir sewer crowded on weekends

Good state park

Camp ground is great. There are 2 shower houses, 1 new one torwards the front and one in the farthest loop. There is a small lake great for kayaking and fishing boats. The swim beach has been closed because of excesive vegetation growth. The trail wraps the lake and connects to the edge of the campground. There is a couple historic sites not far on the side of the lake, quick little drive.

Campground

Very clean and safe place. Lots of shaded campsites, a lot with electric hookups. Clean bathrooms and shower houses. Can bring your kayaks at no extra cost! We will definitely be back!

Love it!

Great park, nice camp sites, will come again!

Quiet fun

Watkins Mill offers easy access, level sites. The Mill is a great place to tour while getting some exercise. The small lake seems to not attract a lot of boaters, but has a fishing dock.

Nice quiet primitive site loop

We stayed in primitive site #3 - fairly close to neighbors, but with some berms/hills between it still felt relatively private. Site didn’t have a ton of level tent sites, but was otherwise in good shape.

Fall foliage was gorgeous this past weekend, and we thoroughly enjoyed the woolen mill tour at the adjacent state historic site.

Shower and restroom facilities seemed adequate, though more dated than other similar state parks in the area. Serviceable but not immaculately clean.
