Visitor Comments, Memories and Reviews
July 20 a hot weekend by not happy
lots of rules that are strickly enforced, no parking except right infront of camper, need to have boats far away in another parking lot long walk to the beach, very little breeze
September 18 Great State Park by Scott White
Great park with hot showers. Great place to fish.
January 19 summer fun by *.* 1 0f 7 *.*
Plenty of parking! I can say that while the park does needs to start getting a better hold on the beer cans & bottles, It is still one of my favorite places to be! People need to stop expecting a darn 5 star resort when they go to some of these state parks. Its nature people there will be some smell and bugs and a little dirt but over all this is a quite nice little beach to go to. Everyone is just here to have fun. The beach is very lovely and I cant wait for us to go back again. I think everyone should pack a cooler and some rafts and just spend a day here. Oh and one last thing if you bring trash in take it back out there are plenty of trash bins in the parking lot for this reason
