Spent an hour just riding through the park and checking out the facilities. Good representation of the local landscape. Beautiful and serene.Campground located on lake is definitely doable.

Since we were never in this area we decided to visit. We drove through the park, there are many cabins available. Fishing looked good.

This was my second trip to the park but my first time staying in a cabin. I loved it! Very clean, comfortable and relaxing. Can't wait to do it again next year.

We visited the park to see the lake. The area was very well kept and a pleasure to sit at a picnic table and enjoy the view of the lake. The park seemed to be larly empty but may have been time of year (August)....More

Stayed on the Tent Loop, space #69 Aug. 16-20, 2017. Campground caters to both RV and tent users. Felt like the park was just for us. No neighbors until the 19th when the eclipse crowds started to arrive. Spacious campsite with potable water and electric...More

You can rent cabins at the state park, they even have about a dozen out on docks, so you can have a wide view of the lake. There is food on site, and grills.
