Very nice state park with sandy beach and picnic area. Easy put in for boats on trailers and a special put in for roof top boats. Campground nice with trees and shrubs between each site giving privacy.

We really like Belle Isle, especially the hiking trails along the river. Our visit in December was cool, but surprisingly saw some Monarch butterflies around the fields. They have kayaks , canoes, paddle boards and small boats that you can rent to enjoy the creeks...More
