It would benefit you to look around at different sites, some are very spacious and wooded and others are more in the open. We stayed in 117, next to the bathroom, I was grateful there wasn't any bathroom smell! I recommend looking at the 1-100 sites, they seemed bigger as we rode through. We rode bikes to all the lakes and on some trails. Kids ride freely around the park roads. Very clean. They came around several times a day to take out garbage, refill paper products and mop if needed.... less

Great hiking and biking trails. Eagle Lake provides a very nice beach for swimming. We were very fortunate to be able to witness the meteor shower while camping overnight. This state park will forever be on our "must return" list.... less

Lots of trees. Many sites had sun full time while others, like ours (site 30) we're mostly shaded, which is what we prefer because of tent camping. Nice fire pits. Had a difficult time with the firewood we bought at the campground's office. Was damp wood that just didn't want to stay lit. Was a bit buggy but being near swampy area, it is to be expected. Two bathrooms for a lot of campsites. Could probably use two more. This campground is alcohol free but the can/bottle donation trailer indicated that people didn't abide by this. Was a quiet park with very little barking by dogs. Small kids crying and whining nearby did cut the quiet of the park. Overall a nice park. A bit of a ride to the lake for swimming which we didn't participate in. Not just for the campers. There are horse trails and mountain biking trails. We saw some horses but no bikers. There are railroad tracks nearby and you do hear the trains, and quite often.... less
