Visited at the end of June 2017. Had a very enjoyable stay. Friends and family accompanied us with their own campers; a group four campsites. Clean, well kept environment. Lots of opportunity to hike and paddle. Good experience overall.

A very nice state park. There is a fee to get in. Has a beach, campground, etc. In winter they groom the cross country ski and snowshoe trails and it is some of the best around.

We have camped at Higley Flow without fail for 9 years. Despite selling our camper we returned again this year to visit friends and it is without a doubt the one regret we have in selling our camper. Great beach and bathroom/shower facilities. Plenty of...More
