We took the vertical hike to the waterfall and what an incredible sight! Well worth the short but uphill hike! Lots of other hikers, everyone talkative and friendly. A well marked trail and lots of little side trails for the more adventurous! Nice and shady...More

Lovely view of the lake, but off season there isn't much going on. Admission $4 adult, $2.50 child seems a bit steep for a small park on the waterside. Good toilets.

We rented a canoe and enjoyed paddling around the lake. Loved seeing loons, a feisty cormorant and many gulls. Really a beautiful lake!

We camped at Branbury State Park May 22-25, at the Spruce lean-to site. Our site was secluded since we were right at the end of the campground and adjacent to a rock cliff that was great for keeping the warmth of the fire in our...More

Visited with DH and DD (3). We drove 1 1/2 hours to get here, that is how much we love it. Sanded beach, clean waters, nice facilities, snacks and boat rentals. Spacious area so although busy not overly crowded. Shaded and sunny areas to park...More

We spent Labor Day weekend at this park. It was a nice park. Very quiet in the night. Quiet hours are strictly enforced. Grasy sites but no privacy betwenn them on the lake side. We will be back.
