Great campground

Sites are large, most with concrete pads. Grounds are well kept. Camp sites available next to the lake. Beautiful lake for kayaking, boating and swimming. Only downfall is that you have to drive a few miles to get to the beach.

Nice family friendly area

Very nice grounds, lots of paved pathways for bike riding, skateboarding, ect.. Air conditioned shower houses. Very nice size spaces, we were in a full hookup site.

Good place

We enjoyed our stay here. Just an fyi to others- it rained quite a bit and many of the sites got flooded. The ground here doesn't drain well. 

Some good trails here. The lake wasn't so great for swimming, too many geese. The campground has been recently renovated with newly paved roads &…

Great campground, amazing short hikes

We absolutely loved our time here, will be back again!!

We stayed at a large corner site adjacent the playground in the back.  It was very quiet and wooded.  We did have the community water spigot at our site, but it wasn't a problem at all (and very handy for us).  The pool was fantastic, with…

Nice campground located around lots of things to do

Nice large campground with a fire pit and picnic table at each site. Camp site was decently sized though on a corner so can get a little busy. Bathrooms and showers were clean. Children’s play area was very nice - my kids loved playing on the equipment. Conveniently located near lots of hiking and…

Nice but small!

The sites in the park are nice but small. There are no full hookup sites for those with bigger campers. The park has plenty to do, swimming at the beach or lodge pool, frisbee golf, horseback riding, hiking, boating, etc. Most sites have shade and hedge roe between your neighbors which is nice.…

  • Playground photo taken at night.
  • Climbing wall as part of the playground. It is across the main road at the campsite so for really young children you would need to walk them to the playground. Other children that are older would be able to walk to the playground as it isn't a super high traffic entrance road.
  • Traditional Swings and none of them are for babies/toddlers.  They do not have an accessible swing for those needing more core supports.

Great state park facilities

The shower houses are pretty nice for a state park, and the sites, while some can be a bit difficult to navigate with hills, are pretty spacious. There are a lot of good shady spots to pick from, and the hiking is amazing. This is an annual trip for my family.

Great stopping point

Staff is very friendly and we got a nice pull through site for a quick stop over my way to upper Michigan. There’s a really nice pond and has water activities if you stay longer. Easy in/out

Beautiful but questionable design.

We stayed down at the "lake" spots which are not on the lake but quite above it. Our first site was #19, we were even hesitant to park our 23ft camper in it, but we did and then realized that as soon as we try to get in or out of the camper, it was a steep drop down 5ft. All the sites around this…

Trails very over grown only four bathrooms.

We travel around and prefer to stay in State Parks because they are usually so nice and well maintained. The trails here were all over grown with down trees everywhere, they have a disc golf course it was over grown and had so much poison ivy we could only play two holes.

They have 79 sites plus…

A friend and I were just traveling through Ohio and needed a place to stay. This is an awesome choice for anyone who likes seclusion or needs a quick place to stay, only 15$ a night and three other campsites occupied, we had a great time.

Nice but a bit cramped

The park is nice and well maintained. The loop we were in was super cramped. We are in a popup camper and I have no idea how the folks in large trailers navigated and got set up. There is not much space between you and the next site. Only space for one car per spot. Very little cell reception…
