This is a beautiful park. Some of the sites have great views of the lake. Lots of trees, and the sites are pretty spacious. Most were fairly level. Great trail that goes all the way around the lake. Don't miss the Veteran's Memorial area they have there--it is really nice. This is a nice, quiet campground and I would come back again.

Nice campground. There are good, shady sites with views of the lake. Lots of room and you do not feel like you are right on top on your neighbors. The swimming area is great during the summer months. Showers were OK, could have been better.

Got a reservation for Memorial Day Weekend only 2 weeks prior. Called and left message in evening, and received a call back from them early next morning. Great customer service on phone. They only had a few sites left, and he let me have my pick, and that was the site waiting for us when we arrived. Check in was fast, they had 3 to 4 people at the desk checking people in, and they still had someone to escort us to our site and help guide us in. The campground was a pleasant surprise. We were not expecting a lot of trees and shade, but our site was completely in the shade. We were surrounded by huge oak trees. It was very scenic. The restrooms were immaculate, there were even pictures on the wall and hanging plants in them. The activities were great. We did them all. We have two boys, 11 and 6, and they had a blast. The jumping pillow is a big hit. Our younger one loved the playground. We did the bikes, played soccer, tether ball, hay rides, ice cream, and a movie on Sunday night. We have done a lot of camping, both at private and state parks, and this is the best place we have stayed. This couple were great hosts. It is clear they love what they do and are there to make people happy: and we left happy. There are other campgrounds out there that are appealing to families, and offering all sorts of activities, but the ones we have stayed at were all about how many people they can squeeze into the campground. We did not feel like this was the case. Waiting was never an issue: showers, front desk, activities. When we ordered wood, it was delivered to our site within 15 minutes each time. We are already planning 1 or 2 more returns this year and planning our trip for next Memorial Day and hope to get our same site.

Not a lot of reserved sites so you have to get here early in the summer months. Very close to the state park. Campground is clean, and the sites are well pretty far apart. Not very much shade though. Good place to camp if you are looking to spend time at the state park, but not much else to do on the campground or around the area.
