Report: A very sweet park! Not crowded. Park office has reasonable price on firewood culled from the pine woods that abound. The swimming area is not crowded at all. The people that work there are friendly. The grounds are very well kept. Bathrooms are clean and user friendly. Becareful of the raccoons and skunks that will boldly go right into you campsite and look for food at night. There are many awesome and HUGE Woodpeckers that are all over the park...you can hear them all day long. Summers are humid...bring mosquito repellant. Be a bit leary of the coyotes at night....you can hear them close to some of the campsites early in the season and they tend to fight at night and sound quite close. Some natives told me last year that there are some problems swith Coy-Dogs in the area. One of the park employees told me that she had seen a wolf outside the park office in December 2003. Highly recommended. Some of my friends have gone there over the years and have been back several times.

Report: I used to live very near this park and worked there on the golf course one summer. To this day, and many years later, it is still one of the prettiest courses I have ever played. If you golf, take time to enjoy the seclusion of the course and the wildlife you are sure to see. They used to make a mean BLT in the snack shop too... The camping is good -- the tent spots are big and private, nestled in tall trees. The trailer sites are in deep woods - lots of shade and convenient to the swimming hole. The trails aren't a huge challenge to walk, but are a fun mountain bike ride. There are a variety of trails - from well traveled and easy to navigate, wide and fairly flat - to narrow and hilly and hidden. The last time I was there - April 2002 - the bog trails weren't open. Looks like the bog took back over. Enjoy!!!
