This was an interesting state park, I’m glad we came here for a day trip instead of booking anything for the nicer months. There is basically one trail that goes along the river between the two campgrounds, and that appears to be it.
Most people were there for ice fishing at this time of year, and everyone else was kind of just walking along the road through the campground since there wasn’t much else to do.
I didn’t take any campsite photos since there was still enough snow cover that I couldn’t really tell that the sites were like. Tree cover seemed to be decent for most sites, and some were even along the river. This is cool, but it also means that there is a chance that your site will get flooded out. Besides the lack of trails the biggest deterrent for me camping here is the fact that there is a train track right there. Close enough that I don’t think ear plugs would cut it for me.
We managed to snag the one picnic table by the boat launch, which was very pretty. It was a fine location for a pandemic meetup with my in-laws, but I don’t think we will be returning.
If you are coming this way from the north take time to stop at Nelson creamery and get a baguette and cheese curds. There is also a winery on the way called villa bellezza that has nice wine and flatbreads.
