To get to the campground, you must paddle. The state park allows only car top boats. We kayaked all of our gear out to the island. It was a few days before 4th of July so it was a very busy time to be in 4th lake making the lake very choppy. A lot of our stuff got wet due to big waves from boats crashing into our kayaks. I’m not sure if the lake is more deserted during the rest of the summer but the lake was FILLED with boats. When we arrived to our camp site, there were 5 pontoon boats anchored and a jet ski pulled right up onto our site. We called the park office and were able to move to another site that didn’t have squatters. The island would have been much more peaceful if you didn’t constantly have boats going by, and the bar directly across the lake didn’t have live music until 2 am. But again, maybe all this has to do with it being the week of the 4th of July. I will absolutely stay at this park again, just for the beauty of the island. P.s. don’t feed the ducks. They will never leave.
sites: boat only access. bring water. pack in/ pack out. lean to at sites. secluded. amenities: pit toilets. other attractions: hiking. theme park near (off island). I would go back again.
