My boyfriend and I went away for our six month anniversary. We ended up staying a very small, family owned cottage. However, we took a trip to find some nice scenic overlook that and we came across this state park. The views were amazing, the weather was great! The trail was so easy to use and it was such a...

We stayed 3 nights at a Pickeral Point electric site within view of the lake last week. What a treat. The site (101) was relatively level, clean and was just what we had hoped for. There was no water at this site but we could fill our collapsible jug from the freeze proof spigot 2 sites down from our spot.... More

This is another wonderful state park that offer couples and families for great bonding time. So easy to park and so many things to do here. Here is very nicely kept and great for picnic, bicycling, hiking or just seat nearby the lake and gaze at the sky. We went kayaking and canoeing on the lake, though, the rental place... More

We have a vacation home not too far from here and love to visit. It is so beautiful and well kept. There are some homes in the area that look abandoned or uncared for. Don't let that scare you. The beaches are nice and the public areas are very clean. It feels like you are in the middle of no-where,... More

Visited over Columbus Weekend and hit the fall foliage at almost peak. This was their last weekend open for the season with not too many campers staying until Monday. Bathrooms were very clean and not too far a walk no matter where your site was located. Stayed in the Northwoods area for more seclusion/trees since we appreciate our privacy but... More

This was the maiden voyage, out of state, for us in our recently acquired 25' motor home. We were able to make on-line reservations and pay for the site in advance of our 3-day visit. Upon arrival, check-in was a breeze at the park office. The staff was well versed, friendly, and eager to help answer questions. Our site was... More

We went on two trails; Little Falls and Conservation Island. Both take about an hour, try the falls first as it is tougher. Not often have I been in such a relaxing park with crystal clear water. I hope I have the opportunity to go back.

Beautiful place to visit in the early fall. We stayed in the cabins which was a lot of fun. Lots of nature and we even saw a big black bear!
