  3. Kathy Shouse says:

    This is our favorite state park. We camp here several times a year. The deer come right up to our RV looking for food. So friendly. We’ve seen as many as 15 at a time. The bathrooms, although old, are kept nice and clean. They rent out canoes and kayaks at the concession stand. BBQ chicken, pork and ribs are awesome at the concession stand also.
