Stopped by for a short visit. Nice park for fishing. A bit too wet for us to explore the trails but I would like to at another time. Wooded camp sites offer a bit of privacy. Did see a fawn.

Park is nice and clean. Restrooms clean. The drawback on the lake is the flooded timber and really no point of reference leaving boat ramp to avoid large tree stumps. Very few people around, but did see the park ranger a few times driving the...More
