State Park with Various Camping Opportunities and Water Activities

 This state park has so many camping opportunities, it almost seems unreal. I think there are at least four different camping areas, including an equestrian camping area and a primitive camping area for hammocks. There are cabins as well as sites for RVs. The most alluring sites, I believe, are beside the lake in areas where the land juts out a few feet. Staying here is a dream for many different types of campers. The bath house is modern and ADA accessible. As a matter of fact, it has the largest showers I have seen at any campground, and I have stayed at over a hundred different campgrounds. The one drawback, however, is that it is a long walk from the Mulberry Grove primitive camping area to the bath house. The Turkey Run camping area was closed down, but it would be even farther away from the bath house. What I love about this campground is that it is so close to the lake. I wish I had had my kayak with me so I could have had some fun on the water. Unfortunately, I was passing through and didn’t bring one with me. I was at Perry State Park during the middle of the week and when it was still a little cool, but I could lonely imagine how busy it is going to be on the weekends and when it gets warmer. For those who love the water, there is at least one boat ramp and a HUGE parking area with toilet facilities. Even if you have to come from the other side of the park, you don’t have to run back to take care of business. There is also an equestrian campground, and it has corrals and sites with water and electricity. There are several trails, and some just for horseback riding. Overall, this was a great campground with many options for camping. I highly recommend it unless you need lots of shade.
