We have camped here every year for almost 20 years and always have a great time. Nice large sites, we'll maintained. Easy walk, bike ride or drive to the beach. Great hiking trails. Nature center always worth a stop. Very busy during summer, always full, so make reservations early on their website, 6 months out. Probably would rate a 10 but no water or sewer hook-ups, which is kind of a hassle. Other than that this is a great state park to spend a week or two.

This is another great COE park that is very popular on weekends. Our site was a little tight and very close to the road, but we managed. There are plenty of much nicer and larger sites, but we had reserved sight unseen. Now that we have been there we would look at sites around #120 area. There is a very nice beach and boat ramp, and boat rentals nearby. Beautiful drive into park, a bit twisty, but no problem even pulling a big trailer. Definitely a family oriented place. We will likely return.

Great state park, full hookups, right on lake. Our site was right on water with beautiful view of sunsets, and moon rises. Park is well maintained, every site cleaned after every stay. Very quiet. All sites are spacious, typical of most state parks. Great hiking trails. This is remote and cell coverage was weak, but we loved it. Closest towns were Lexington, about 15 miles, and Jackson, about 30. About 50 miles from Shiloh national battlefield, which was exceptional. We stayed 9 days , sight unseen, and were not disappointed. Would definitely return.

What a great park with many sites right on the river where you can watch the barges go by day and night, along with other boat activity. This would be a 10 if they had water hook ups at the sites. Site was easy to back into and easy to level our travel trailer. Some sites are close together, but most are a nice size, and there is plenty of grass area between the back of the sites and the water. We will definitely camp here again.

This is a great camping location, we had a space right on little Crystal Creek, it was beautiful. The new owner is making great strides and in another year or so this will definitely be a 10, especially once they get the sewers in. Free honey wagon though with a couple day notice. We were there during the fire ban so couldn't have campfire nor grills, but we still had a great time. If you are looking for a nice place in the Aspen area this is definitely the spot.

Wonderful, well kept campground on Mississippi River. Sites are a bit small, but it wasn't crowded so every other site left plenty of space. This time of year it is heavy with fish flies; be ready to have a campfire to keep them away. Very nice bike path runs through the campground which you can ride for 10 to 20 miles in either direction. Nice location, we would stay here again for a weekend.
