We enjoy going out to the state park and putting our kayak in the water. If we stay overnight we like the shelters unless the grandparents bring out the camper.

The park looks great right now with all of the foliage coming in for the Spring. Good fishing spots right from the back of our RV spot. Lots of nice trees for shade.

Beautiful state park on a lake with two separate camping areas. There were several fishing piers throughout the park, great fishing! Several hiking/biking trails through hardwood forests and around the lake. Campsites had grills, fire rings, electric and water. Bathrooms/showers were very clean.
