Stayed here several times in the summer of 2020 bc it was only an hour and a half from home and usually had sites available on or near the lake.
The algae was kind of thick, which made fishing impossible,so we stopped bringing the kayak.
This rating is just a personal preference. We needed a spot to stay for the night, and the drive up was not worth it. You drive up a long, steep, windy road to the campgrounds, not to mention the drive to get to the town was very out of the way. If you’re on Sprint or T-mobile - there is no service. We thought it was a little pricey, about $30 for one night. We were also charged 10 extra dollars for having a cat(that never leaves the van) for one night.
I live near by to this state park and have spent much time exploring the entirety of it.
The trails are all nice, nothing too strenuous, and each have something unique compared to the others in the park. During the spring the Salamander trail is filled with thousands of Trilliums, a truly majestic experience. Lots of flowing water to enjoy throughout the park, some are off the trails but never hard to reach. A good park to enjoy with family and friends because you can fish, kayak, bike, skate, hike, horseback, and picnic. In addition, there are numerous historical cabins, locks, shelters, and a water run mill to sight-see. Then for those in search of a bit of spookiness, Gretchen’s Lock is notoriously a haunted location with certainly eerie vibes.
The family campground is small, but the park as a whole is not far from civilization so if any supplies are needed it is not a far endeavor.
I do not horseback, so I cannot comment on that campground, but many of the trails are friendly for horses to travel.
OH! And if you are there on the weekends the Wildlife Center is a must! The staff are so nice, it is by donation to visit so is in everyone’s price range. An astounding display of animals and nature information! You can even hold the snakes and see a bee hive in action.
Older type bathhouses but very clean, stainless steel fixtures. The campground is in two areas but split into about 5 loops. A lot are paved with electric sites, a couple loops are I paved roads and mostly tent sites but very nice! Pretty peaceful place, well patrolled by park rangers!water access in all loops. Outside of camping area are picnic areas and a lovely swimming beach, nice electric only fishing lake!
An older state park that is getting updated. Most sites are electric hook-up only. They are putting in new sites, full service sites. They are also putting in new restroom/showers, which are greatly needed. Some restrooms are really old, not taken care of outhouses. Dirty. Stinky. Outhouses. The sites are nice and some have a decent amount of space between you and your neighbors. Some sites do overlook the lake.
This is our first trip out this year and the park is lovely. Mainly shaded spots with electric at most. Perfect place to get started with minimal water and dump capacity. Our daughter did use our portable dump cart for her grey water and they had to refill the water by hand but with a 60 gal water tank, we have managed well for 5 days.
Loads of trails to hike and lots to visit. I recommend the Mineral Springs and old cemetery for sure.
Very nice park . Scenic on way in . Lots were decent size , not real private but our tent set up gave us privacy. We creek walked and hiked. Nice little campground , don’t have any info for rv’ers but for primitive it’s nice. The nature building was open on Saturday and Sunday and was great for our little ones
We chose this state park because it was close and had good reviews. Overall our experience was very good. Great atmosphere and nicely wooded lots. Decent size too. Only negatives I have are some of lots are pretty uneven and the vegetation at all the shores edge . Had to have boat to get out and fish. Beach was great and there an epic playground for kids . If your kids are 8 and under they ll love the nature playground and nets provided to catch critters . We ll camp here again for sure .
We stayed from Sunday thru Wednesday. We had a nice large full hook site. It was partly shaded but could've used better drainage. Most full hook up sites had wet spots. They are adding more full hook up sites.
We did not use the facilities so no review there.
