Excellent park with very good facilities. Each site has its own barbecuing grill and Lantern hanging spots with space enough to set up 2-3 tents and park one car. There is an amphitheater with free movies and ice-cream socials during weekends. Best of all is the man-made beach with swimming area safe for kids. Cons: plenty of small harmless bugs. Firewood they sell is not all that great, get your own.

Since our last stay, we have seen both improvements and declines. On the positive side, there are a greater number of family-oriented, planned activities on weekends (ice cream socials, "candy bingo," Civil War-oriented programs). Other positives are a number of scenic hiking trails, some of which connect to the Appalachian Trail; a nice beach and swimming area, most easily accessible from the Ash Loop; paddle boat and rowboat rentals; a nature center; and a reasonably well-stocked store. On the other hand, the rest room and shower facilities were inadequately cleaned and are in need of some serious updating, and groups of teen campers were rather loud at night, demonstrating the lack of an effective system for enforcement of the posted quiet hours. All in all, though, our group of family and friends liked this campground a great deal, and we plan to return again soon. We camped here in tents.

This excellent state park includes a beach and lifeguard-monitored (lake) swimming area, canoe and rowboat rentals, a nature center, and a number of hiking trails. Sites are gravel, with lots of trees, and arranged in loops: Ash Loop is closest to the swimming area (and most convenient for those with small children); Cedar Loop has (20 amp) electric hookups; and Dogwood Loop is the quietest. There are planned activities (including an ice cream social and ranger-naturalist talks) on weekends, and security/noise control is provided by the quite available and generally friendly campground "hosts." This was our family's first campground, and it remains one of our nostalgic favorites.
