Exceptionally beautiful and clear lake that’s surrounded by cliffs. The main activities are boating and hiking, with other things to do in the nearby towns like golf and restaurants. Jeep rentals are popular, which was obnoxious when we were hiking…but it does let more people enjoy the park. There is traditional tent/rv camping and also a big lodge for the less adventurous. There are at least three different campgrounds, which are all similar.
Yay: great canoeing, good wooded campsites, some near the water, not too crowded even in summer, great nature feel in this simple state park.
Surprise: if you’re lucky you can attend one of the festivals they host during the years, ranging from Native American culture to folk music. Great sunrises.
