It's hard to find information for tenters like us for this park...so to all of you tent campers, this one's for you! We stayed in site 202 (25 ft). This was a decent site with a bit of treed view of the lake, but nice enough. Our large 12 person tent easily fit into the space. The fire pit and picnic table we're right out side our door! Next door were the volunteer hostesses - they were amazing. Nice, available and accommodating (wood $5 per bundle, ice $2.50 per bag). The trading post is only open on weekends (Fri - Sun). Back to the site description. We camped Tday weekend so it got pretty full pretty fast. There are mostly RV'ers this time of year, but there were at least 15 or so tenters that we saw. We realized that some 15ft sites would've been fine, but since its first come first serve and you have a large tent, I would go for a RED site. Also, try to have an idea where those red-25 foot tent sites are - there were more yellow sites (40 ft) than anything else. We drove around the loops a couple of times and there weren't many reds. I wish their maps identified where red was. Some sites are rocky (behind the trading post). Some 15 ft sites were right on the water a 4-8 person tent would fit no problem. The park was awesome...nice medium-short hikes - super duper friendly folks. Bathrooms were clean, but showers didn't operate that well. We still loved it there and would go back. My only dislike was the lack of environmental friendly practices. Purchased wood came in plastic bags and there was no recycling. A big bummer for this enviro gal. Even though the park was pretty full, everyone was very courteous especially at bed time for our thin walls! So there you have it... :) Hope this helps. We camped at F. D. Roosevelt State Park in a Tent.
So many things to do in the area, but we were just happy with being in the woods!
