We camped here during the week and there was no more than 6-7 other campsites in use. Our site was level and surrounded by lots of foliage and tall trees. The washrooms were well maintained and very clean. The showers were a nice size with a small bench. Which was great to take small children into the shower with you. A nasty storm rolled through and the park staff checked on everyone and were very friendly. The pool is large with a diving board. Also has a kiddie pool about 18 inches deep for the little ones. The downside is you must pay an entry fee to use the pool.

We camped here over Memorial Day weekend. The office staff were friendly and smiling upon check-in. Our site was easy to back into and pretty level. However the sites were small and close to your neighbors. Our fire ring was 3 feet from the gravel road and parking area to the bathrooms. The fire pits were not dug out from the previous season and had weeds growing in them. The first night there was a thunderstorm, our power flickered on and off. The next morning some of the gravel roads were flooded and remained muddy the entire weekend. The bathrooms and showers were cleaned multiple times a day. With the contstant usage of the bathrooms, one out of the two toilets clogged, the management put an out of order sign on the stall door. The other ladies room on the far side of the swimming pond had 2 toilets, but no stalls or doors. Adults and children alike, would just roam through your site with no respect for your personal space. The beach and swimming pond were very small. With the temperature above 90 people were packed on that beach like sardines. Our children didn't mind, they still had fun at the beach. There are a few playgrounds, one is on the beach area. There was also multiple activities scheduled throughout the weekend for children and adults.

The office staff was friendly and greeted us with a smile. We found our site easily and backed in rather effortlessly. Site 201 was fairly level with plenty of grass and enough foliage to keep our privacy. The bath houses and washrooms were clean and had hot water. The playground is recent and has a lot of different things for kids to do. The beach is a nice size but empty due to being off season. The only downside was our fire pit had not been cleaned out in quite some time. We had to dig it out ourselves in order to have a fire in it.

This is an absolutely beautiful park. We camped during the week and it was peaceful and quiet. The beach was clean and well maintained. The lake at Cox Hollow was clear and warm. Our campsite, site 327, was large, level and private. It had the perfect amount on sun and shade. The Twin Valley playground was huge, with plenty of things for the children to climb and swing on. The only down side was the amount of mosquitoes, gnats and flies. Overall a pleasant camping experience.

The only issue we had with this campground was that the randomly closed the office and campground store while delivering ice and firewood to other campers. Overall it was a nice, clean and friendly campground with some large oak trees and level sites.

We camp here annually, usually on a non-electric site. Each site in the Ice Age loop is separated by trees and bushes so it offers a little more privacy. It's a beautiful and well maintained state park.
