    Great area to camp; beautiful campsites, even in the woods. Short and interesting trails to hike around the park including one that follows where the old railroad went through. Also a bird watching area. Quiet, especially lovely when the fall leaves are on--we camped in November.

    Great state park. Very comprehensive. Lots of park-sponsored activities. We have gone on night prowls, learned about snakes, astronomy, taken sunset cruises, learned to kayak and taken Geocaching 101 (the only thing that we paid for was the sunset cruise to offset the high price of gas). Campgrounds very nice, lodge is amazing and the restaurant is very good. We have stayed both in the lodge and at the campground. We even went one fall to the Civil War re-enactment. Very clean water in the lake, love to swim here. A family favorite! If you stay in the campground in the woods the most amazing firefly nighttime show, like looking at Christmas lights twinkling. Lakefront campsites are also very nice. Two thumbs up!
