This is a GREAT state park with nice sites and a LOT to do in summer. We visited in late fall and it was too cool to swim or enjoy the water, but the park is nicely wooded and a great place to enjoy nature. We spent a lot of time enjoying our hammocks. The campsite was spacious.
I read on another site about a camper setting up his pop-up while his daughter played in the leaves, and she was bit by a copperhead who was hiding in the leaves! They rushed her to medical care, but fortunately it was a dry bite (snake did not inject venom) and she was ok just hurting. That could happen anywhere, any time, but has made me extra cautious of leaf piles in the fall.
