The park itself is beautiful; it earns its name! We camped two nights in the Chase Point Campground with our four young children and enjoyed the boardwalk by the lake, the Chase Point hike on the esker, and swimming at the little swimming beach. Our campsite was great; we were in site 13, and it lacked privacy but was spacious, level, and had good shade. The lack of privacy between sites would be our only complaint about the actual sites. Unfortunately, however, we found the bathrooms and vault toilets to be pretty gross: huge spiders in the latrines, no hand sanitizer the whole time we were there (Saturday morning through Monday morning), and bathrooms that were out of order, out of paper towels, overflowing garbage cans, and even no soap. They didn’t even open the bathroom windows for ventilation. Normally we wouldn’t feel it’s a huge deal, but during a pandemic, it’s pretty bad to not be cleaning and restocking those necessary facilities, especially over a summer weekend with an almost full campground. We will definitely come back because we loved the park, but we will wait until the pandemic is over so we can feel safer (and rent a canoe!).

My family just returned from a 7 night stay at this wonderful park. We traveled by motor home, and brought our own bikes and kayaks along. We stayed in the Chase Point Campground. We found it to be very clean, quiet, and full of beautiful flowers, dragonflies, and birds. The campsite is close enough to Coon Lake that we could hear the call of loons at night as we ate dinner. It was wonderful, but seeing them up close from our kayaks was even better! We also saw beavers and a heron when we kayaked at sunset. The hiking and biking are somewhat limited, but we had enough to do. We would not hesitate to go back.

We enjoyed a very nice hike on Chase Point here. It is about a 2 mile hike. Fairly easy. Some stairs at end of point to get to waters edge. Hiking trail will allow you to view both lakes, usually a nice breeze between the lakes.

We are at Scenic State Park in MN. The foliage is changing, some leaves already dropped. Lush vegetation with a mixture of pines and hardwood trees. Had the sun yesterday so we were able to kyak across Coon lake and around the point. Water views do not give you much more than views of the pines, but it was relaxing and peaceful. You see more color hiking on trails. Upon entering this park, recommend disconnecting your tow vehicle on big-rigs driving thru campground. We made several loops to find a spot big enough, level enough, and with no branches getting in the way. Sites 63e to 69e seem to be the most open for larger RVs. Space between sites is close on some, better on others. Fire rings and picnic tables at sites. Went into the town of Bigfork. Small Thrift store packed with goods. Grocery store in town well supplied, hardware store was also nice, as it is half household stuff, clothes, and gift items. Everyone we met in town was super nice. Staying 4 days. We travel in a motorhome with tow vehicle. Would come again.
