We camped here last year and absolutely loved the biking trails, picnic area, scenery, beach, facilities, and we will certainly be visiting again this year.

We were so fortunate to have great weather the first weekend in Feb. and to find this gem of a state park. Beautiful hour long trail through the woods! Makes us want to come back to the area during the summer!
