Park is Great, Campsites Suck!

Stayed here in the “primitive” camp. You are basically staying with your neighbors in small cleared areas where you can see everything everyone else is doing and if you have one of the sites nearer to the parking areas, you will have people walking through your campsite all day and night from the ones in the rear. From what I saw, the electric sites in the main campground aren’t much better. I mean this is a midwestern state park camping experience for sure. If you’re expecting any amount of privacy, think again.

The lake is pretty beautiful. The trails are well marked and the horse trails go on for miles and miles so if you have horses this is a great place to trail ride and if you’re a hiker who is not afraid of horses, you can always enjoy the equestrian trails for some serious mileage!

Mountwood Park Family Campground

The campground was pretty much empty. There are a few permanents there but we had it all to ourselves. Covid still has every other site coned off. It was clean though. Went for a hike on the park side around the lake. Several trails. Alot of ATV and dirtbikes came in on the weekend.

Pretty, Free, but a dirty lake

I went for an overnight camping getaway. The campsite was fairly clean, had to pickup a few wrappers. I was excited to get a spot overlooking the water, with a table and fire pit. Not a really good spot for a tent, but I was able to find a soft spot off to the side. From up on the hill looking down on the lake, it looked quite clear. I was excited to grab my canoe and jump in.

I carried my boat to the waters edge. As I was going to put my canoe into the water, I noticed some really nasty stuff in the water. It looked like human poop. I was kinda stunned, and then I noticed a lot of flies all around that particular area. So given that I decided I was not going to be canoeing or fishing.

I get it, it’s free. But I just wish people would NOT empty their RVs into the lake. Kinda ruined a good thing. Aside from that, the area was very pretty.

Everything you can want in a state park

Friendly staff bailed us out when I found that I booked the wrong site. Boat rental is pricy, but there’s lots to see, especially if you have a Big Foot fan in the group.

Other campers were friendly, but there’s also enough space if you want to be alone. The bathrooms were clean and well-maintained. No complaints at all—we’ll definitely be back.

Beautiful park, average campground

We are tent campers who look for sites with shade and privacy.  Although the campground is well-maintained and all the staff (and campers) we met were very friendly, there are very few "tent only" sites and all of the loops we saw had sites that were open, unshaded, and not very private.  The park itself, however, had much to offer, with two marinas, good hiking trails, a nice, very inexpensive golf course, pretty beaches for swimming, and boat rentals.  The park also has "primitive" sites that are several miles from the campground.  We decided not to stay there in order to be somewhat close to a bathroom and shower during hot weather, but the sites might be worth a visit for those seeking a great deal of privacy.

An amazing campground.

There's trails for horseback riding (your own), fishing areas, kayak area, with nice padded sites.

Much Needed Weekend Getaway

What a great weekend for exploration! The campsites are Nice and spread out with most of them being right on the water. As far as I could see most sites had a fire ring with a grate for cooking and a picnic table. Beautiful country and scenery with no cell service so no need to be worried about your phone and you can actually enjoy what’s around you with out modern day distractions. I would say it is almost necessary to bring some sort of water craft, John boat or kayak to enjoy the lakes and fish. You can fish off of the bank but there’s not much room to walk as they are mostly wooded around the banks. The downfalls of this campground is the water was recently shut off so you need to be sure to bring plenty of jugs of water, not a big deal though. Also, the bathroom houses not my favorite part to say the least. Other than those minor things I loved the time I spent there and will surely be back!

Top Notch Park

This is an awsome state park. Personally, it is definitely a favorite and I think it is one of the best in the state. Large lake allows for all types of boating. Has large campground only beach and plenty of hiking trails/destinations. Site are packed together like other parks and majority are large and level. We stayed in G loop (G33) and were more than satisfied with the site. Will be returning for sure!
