We spent a pleasant afternoon hiking the trails of this tranquil state park . It was very peaceful and quiet. There are camping facilities, a lodge and restaurant, as well as a golf course, none of which we visited.

Stopped by on a Sunday drive. Very quiet the day we were there. I found this would be a great place to relax and read a good book. Plenty of quiet spaces.

We ate at the Shawnee State Park Restaurant. Just my husband and I. The service left a lot to be desired but the food was very good. Meatloaf was best ever and the mac and cheese could have been a meal on it's own.

Our family goes here a couple of times a year and I'm excited to go every time. It really is such a beautiful place tucked away.

Our church group reserved a camping area and had the best time! The campground itself is very clean. Love staying here and camping!

You might be a little crowded. There were only 4 of us. Ours had one bathroom.
Did you visit the beach while there? I am wondering what the lake is like for swimming and how far it is from the cabins. Thanks

The lake is not the nicest water to swim in. I enjoy the beautiful Shawnee Hills and do enjoy fishing in the lake. Shawnee Lodge is where I would recommend for swimming.
