The Friday night buffet is a very popular. The variety is excellent and we especially like the fish. You can expect traditional Southern food including the banana pudding. There are no reservations so be prepared to wait a bit. It is worth it.

We rendezvous with family members at the campground and found the sites roomy and nice. Staff was helpful also. Sites could be more level however. Only reason it didn't get 5 stars

We enjoy going to the Friday lunch fish buffet. If possible, request a table by the large windows.. You see the river below, a rustic stone bridge and many beautiful trees in the state park. Servers are very friendly ! The fried catfish is excellent plus they have grilled as well. Salad bar, soup , roast beef, gravy , mash... More

Quaint little state park where the Civilian Conservation Corp left some charm from the 1930s. Delightful stonework bridge. Decent place to eat and I saw bird wildlife. Noticed they offer paddle boats for summer but I haven't been there in the warm weather.

The food is served buffet style. The restaurant is very pretty, overlooking the lake. The homemade banana pudding is excellent, the rest of the food is mediocre.

This place was packed so I am certain everyone thinks the food is good. We went with a group so we had reserved seating. The food buffet was really good, several choices, we were there on a Saturday & it was Meatloaf & baked chicken, mashed potatoes, green beans, slaw, carrots, rolls, corn, & a few other items I can't...

This is a VERY beautiful and well maintained state park. I have camped in various sections of the park, the most recent area 5. Restrooms were very clean and there was enough separation between sites that I had privacy. We had one meal at the restaurant in the park. The food was average buffet quality food.
