Love this park. So much to do from walking trails and nature center to just chilling at the waterfront deck. My family and I come here often for picnics. Best part is it's free!

Well maintained car camping area with clean shower/bathrooms. Camped here for two nights while visiting the National Whitewater Center. Staff was very friendly during check in. Ice and firewood we're available for purchase and the combination bathroom and showers, which were in good shape for a campground, we're a nice surprise. Only issue is the fact that this campground is not out in the wilderness so there is some outside noise. But it feels like you're in the woods.

Great location and isolation. Can't make it to the mountains? This place suffices nicely. Road was an easy hike and the "opportunity" offshoots are fun!

A great place for our family reunion BBQ on the Deck which can be reserved. Deck overlooks the lake and is under a canopy of trees to provide shade. Six large picknic tables provided ample seating for 30. A wonderful oasis to hike, boat and picnic. Views are lovely and the trails keep it interesting. There is plenty of parking and easy to moderate trails. I haven't visited the nature center but plan to in the future.

A great mixture of trails to hike, grilling picnic tables to rent out, waterfront area, and nature center to view some of the area's natural wildlife. Love this place! Plenty of parking and the restrooms are clean.
