A very nice wooded state park and recreation area surrounding a 585 acre lake. The lake has several fingers and is popular for fishing and boating. The campground has access to the marina via a short trail from the end of the reservable loop, and then by walking across a floating bridge. One of the two boat ramps is located there. The restaurant at the marina was not yet open for the season, but they were getting ready to open. The campground itself is very shady, and the sites were clearly defined and surfaced with pea gravel. That said, the electric hookups are doubles and shared with the neighboring site. So you had best come prepared with lots of extension cords if you pick your site unseen from the online map. Water pumps are dispersed throughout the campground and are for communal use. There is one shower house with flush toilets, but 6 sets of vault toilets. One camping cabin was available to rent. The other two first-come, first-served loops have a staircase down the steep slope to the lake with a small floating dock at the bottom. However, the one next to our site, was blocked off and closed. The lake would be ideal for exploring via kayak. Hiking was available, but it was wet and muddy, so we didn't check out the trails. We camped at Stephen A. Forbes State Recreation Area in a Motorhome.
