“take advantage of all this state park has to offer”
Reviewed 4 November 2012

The SML State Park is a great place to spend a day (or a week, if you have the time). There are so many things to do (picnic areas, trails, swimming, boating, cabins, etc.) . We've had family reunions, cub scout outings, family vacations, day trips to swim & picnic... so much fun!

“A quiet lake for a getaway.”
Reviewed 26 September 2012

I always enjoy this park. It has some very good hiking trails.The lake itself is very relaxing and beautiful. I enjoy fishing and camping here. The information and displays in the visitor center are very interesting. The park's location is near to some awesome other attractions. I am looking forward to returning in the future for more hiking and fishing. I plan on taking my boat next trip.

“Nice, comfortable cabin.”
Reviewed 24 September 2012

Would like the option of a 1 day stay. Well maintained cabins. The lake is beautiful. The beach was closed though it was only September.

“Love our State Parks”
Reviewed 10 September 2012

We were there the last week in August....amazingly clean grounds, picnic area, boat launch, campsites and beach. The only disappointment was the beach area had no life guard on duty (college kids returned to school 8/20) so swimming was not permitted. Solved this issue by renting a pontoon boat and enjoying the enormous lake. Clean, refreshing water. Loved my swim in the open water.
