Park is great, campground itself is okay

Pike Lake is a local favorite, with decent hiking trails and beach. Heed warnings of swimmers itch and know that the dog beach is very small, with no beach at all (just a place rest for your dog to go take a swim.)

As for the campground, it’s small and has relatively little privacy so you’ll make quick friends with your neighbors - unexpected from a state park. But the restroom facilities have flush toilets & showers, and are clean.

Be sure to check out the interpretive astronomy trail and take the walk up Powder Hill to the tower!

  • yes, Pluto is still listed as a planet!
  • power hill tower
  • the campground is pretty open
