We camped 2 nights here. It's obviously a well-thought out campsite. There's ample room for both tents and RV's. I don't know if all the sites supply it, but our spot had power and water. Bathrooms were close but unobtrusive. There are lots of pavilions...More

We have visited before and love to see the natural area. There is an observation tower that we climbed again on this trip. Boardwalks, manicured trails and rough sand trails. The wildlife never disappoints. Want to come back and kayak here.

There’s nothing wrong with this little state park, but then again there’s really nothing super special about it either. It’s kinda small actually - especially for a place called BIG lagoon - lol. Anyhow, it’s reasonable, it’s got some trails, and some decent camping spots...More

The bike riding would be good. There is a road that makes a loop around the park.
