Nice campground. Good bike and walking path. Kids could fish from the bank. Holiday weekend gets pretty crowded, but able to take shower without having to wait.

The state park and campground is beautiful. Campsites are huge with manicured grass and level paved pad. Price didnt break the bank like most camping resorts. We saw more fireflies last night than I can recall seeing at one time. Deer wonder around and seem...More
