Super clean and nice state park. Love the trails and the lake. Has a cool faerie trail system that feels magical. A great local close to city camping location without feeling close to a city.

I enjoy watching the sunset from the dock on the lake at Millersylvania State Park. It is a quiet, off the beaten path park with miles of forested trails. Campground is clean and safe.

If you want to enjoy hiking in the great Pacific Northwest but don't have the stamina - this is a beautiful, simple place that's an easy walk. Go off season - Summer can be crowded.

This is great for swimming, Kayaking, canoeing or just having a picnic. It is vary close to the freeway but you will feel you are way out away from everything.

We love to camp here or just spend the day. The kids like to swim and play in the park on the toys. Lots of places to picnic.

My sister and I were looking for a good place to hike. The trails are flat and well-groomed. Personally, I would have preferred more of a challenge, but my sister was happy without any hills to climb. We had a great hike with fresh air...More

I believe that the temperature is above 60° It's warm enough that it was enjoyable and refreshing without freezing you out.
