The perfect place to get a great hike or bike ride in. The beach is accommodating with restrooms close by. Great boat and kayak access.

The mountain bike trails are well kept, the scenery is awesome. It was a very relaxing, serene, and enjoyable trip. I enjoyed biking along the falling leaves and crisp fresh air.

Read all the reviews and they were spot on. Camped here Aug 18,19 and 20 and wished it would've been longer. This was my first time here and I only live 30 min away, I just never realized they had such a big campground. They...More

We attended a 10 km volkswalk with about 40 others. There were two 5km loops available. These perambulated the many lakes there. Trails with natural surfaces were clear and easily walkable. Strollers or wagons would have a bumpy ride. They have camping spaces for vehicles...More

We stayed in camp site 105, which conveniently and unknown to us has a little path that leads right to the blue line multi-use trail. That was lots of fun! It's a shady spot with mature trees. All the sites are very private, with trees...More

Love this park! 3 different lakes, a river, and campsites. Lots of hiking and biking trails! Shady trees everywhere. Enjoy the peace, or rent a kayak at the beach!

We stayed two nights with our toddler in May 2016 and had a great time. Clean restrooms. Would be nice if the playground had more options for young children- it's very much designed for older kids. Even the swings were all really high.
