We had a great time going to this area as we travel to it a few times each summer. Lots of water to boat around.

The Staff at the park made the experience exceptional. I stayed there in June and I think it is the first time in years that I was able to completely relax. The place is kept immaculate and it is clear the staff really cares how their guests are doing. The amenities are kept very clean and the shower and bath rooms are clean like a nice hotel. I cannot say enough how beautiful the place is. I very highly recommend if you get a chance to stay here, try to plan on a minimum of two days. The beach is great and the fishing is plentiful. I WILL be back at this place.
We visited here for the July 4th weekend and to our surprise it wasn’t too crowded. There is an entrance fee to enter the state park and additional fee for the swimming area or beach. They have enough parking space and a cafe too. Clean toilet and shower as well. Before heading toward the swim area there a nice playground for the kids to play around. They have campground and nature center. Enjoyed our time there specially the kids 😇.
