Lake Dennison has camping, a large amount of picnic tables and grills, and lots of room to walk. The beach is very clean, and not usually crowded.

I have never camped her but I have enjoyed bringing my children here to swim in the summer. I also take advantage of all the hiking trails on the state grounds. Very nice, very clean and a great place to go.

I would recommend this campground! I stayed with 7 other friends over 2 campsites and had a great time. The campsites were spacious, and there was even a connecting path between the 2 campsites - but yet still separated by trees for privacy if there...More

great place to hike for those not into climbing mountains, trails are wide and clear, plenty of different routes so that you can vary distances and routes, quit and never see motor bikes or 4 wheelers driving around so walking is safe

look at the map before booking...the ones furthest away from the lake are almost adjacent to 202 to the point of the guardrail almost being in your site. the rest of the sites are awesome. though if I could I would try to... More
