My first visit to this park was a blast. If you live in the Midwest, I would suggest a visit. Lots of hiking and things to explore.

For hiking - we went up loop 10 and down loop 9. It was a steep climb to the top but had great overlook views. If you do the whole loop, coming down 9 is a breeze.

For camping - we stayed in hollows creek. The rv sites are nice, clean and have a nice fire pit. They are a little close to each other, but I like how the bluff helped split them up a little (hence the steep incline others have mentioned). Tent camping sites looked awesome, they are spread out throughout the park, and there’s several walk in sites. We will probably do that next time.

The cave was neat to see, but the hiking, and rest of the park was pretty impressive.

Great spot for lake views.

This was my first time renting an electric site. We stayed in Loop F, site 345. Crows Creek is a nice campground that has Great Lake views.

We stayed in March and didn’t realize that only Loop G had working restrooms (so be mindful of that when selecting a site off season). The sites (with electricity) are a little close, but it’s manageable.

The loops all have a paved trail that goes for miles, perfect for walking dogs. The campsites are nice and clean and it was easy to level our pop up.

All in all, it’s a great campground.
