I have been here twice a year for the past several yrs for scrapbooking. The only thing is their Wi-Fi is not so great but getting there. They are so great with getting us all we need. The prices are also reasonable.

Park area is kept very clean. There are plenty of places to picnic, fish, and swim. The lodge offers day time conference rooms. The Nature Center offers daily activities. Military gets a discount on Camping.

We spent a pleasant afternoon hiking the trails of this tranquil state park . It was very peaceful and quiet. There are camping facilities, a lodge and restaurant, as well as a golf course, none of which we visited.
