Lake Hudson is a wilderness lake with excellent fishing for muskie and walleye. Many sites have lake access via a short trail (2 sites are completely open to water)as they have left the shore line wild. You can beach your boat at your site but there is a challenging 5 foot climb down from the end of the trail to the water but most have steps cut into the clay there. It is no wake so is excellent for kayaks and canoes and is a designated dark sky preserve with great star viewing for the astronomy minded. Lots of birds and game around. There are only four developed areas on the lake and they are spread out miles apart. The 50 site campground, a boat launch, a beach area and a picnic shelter with one grill. The launch has picnic tables, privy, and grills for daily visitors. Great private sites cut into dense under brush consisting primarily of wild cherry, autumn olive and hawthorn and all of them have electric even though many of the hook ups are strangely located far from the site proper, so bring lots of cord. Densely shaded trails are brushed hogged into the underbrush between the sites which is unique and may only be there to provide access to the electric hook ups found in them. One of the 2 vault toilets was installed new this August and they are cleaned daily. There is one hand pump for water. 7 miles away in Hudson there is a big grocery, golf course and movie theater and a better golf course is even closer to the park. Very little negatives about this recreation area. The hawthorn is thick as you can imagine and can tear you to pieces if you try to advance through it and the fire rings do not have cooking grills installed.
