We camped in a tent Gilbert Lake for 2 nights. My family loved it! The bathrooms were clean all day. We had stayed the year before at Glimmerglass and the bathrooms there were disgusting unless you used it at 6am, right after cleaning.
The only pitfall would be that the paved roads were crumbling in most places around the camping sites. That makes it hard if you have little ones that ride tricycles or scooters. Our 5 year old could not enjoy riding around with our older one.
The camp sites themselves all seemed spacious. I know ours was. The grounds were clean. The state park itself was beautiful. There is a shaded trail that goes around the lake. And, there are off-shoot hiking trails into the woods, but I didn't go on those. There is a very nice beach with a large grassy area, where you can grill. They have shelter areas with picnic tables, too. The bathrooms at the beach and concession stand was all clean. It was easy to rent a kayak or canoe. At the other end of the land is a house-like gazebo, which was cute and quaint. They had movie night there. There is fishing spots on the lake. The park seems to have activites every day for the kids, like zoo-friends, face painting and movie night.More
