They have some awesome private camp spaces and it's just a beautiful park. I really love and appreciate the bike and walking trails. The beach is also really large and really clean. It feels like a real ocean beach! There are playgrounds everywhere which the kids loved as well.

Beautiful park, clean restrooms. Nice, well marked hiking trails and bike path. Lots of activities for kids to do! Campground is huge, but still tree cover and quiet loops. Our campsite #365 could use more rock though, as it rained and created a lot of mud in comparison to other sites.

This is an ideal park for beginners and novice hikers. More experienced hikers will want to head to Turkey Run state park. The Inn and campgrounds combine to offer a full range of accomodations: from roughing it with no electricity to well apportioned rooms. And the lake too- there is something for everyone. The the toboggan run means there is something all the time! A true 4-seasons treasure.

This is a very great relaxing place to go and unwind. Cheaper than therapy... That's for sure! Just keep your mind open & let it go. Love the 45 minute horse ride. The campground is wonderful & clean. Many things to do. You just have to go check it out sometime for yourself.

This state park is a great summer destination, especially for families. There were lots of kids on bikes exploring all day. It was fine for our group, which didn't have any kids, because we chose a camping spot tucked into a nice corner. (Campsite 391 - not great for an RV but good for tent camping. The bathroom nearby wasn't well kept but there was another within walking distance with showers. There's a road on the campsite map that is actually a bike/walking-only road, which makes the campsite feel pretty secluded.) The lake is surprisingly warm and there are a few good dedicated spots for swimming. There are a ton of other things to do, including beach volleyball courts, basketball courts, weekly nature/ampitheater events, and so on. (We checked out a volleyball from the Inn.) We weren't there in winter but it seems like a good place to go for a getaway that time of year too. We brought our dog, and as it turns out dogs aren't allowed on public access beaches. But we got a tip from someone on one of the beaches that if the lifeguard/rangers couldn't see us, they weren't going to enforce anything. So if you head to one of the beaches either by the inn or by the campground with your dog you can sneak around to the edge, past the buoys that define the beach, you can enjoy the day swimming.
