Visitor Comments, Memories and Reviews
April 12 Good fishing near by
Nice park but camping sites are very unlevel, small and just grave. Difficult to get into some of the spots due to close trees and narrow roads. Handicap spots very nice.
May 31 revisiting soon
May 6 by bhunt
The buffet at the lodge is great! The campsites are closer to the road than I like. The marina is nice.
June 16 A must visit every year by Larry & Carolyn
We love to visit Paris Landing State Park and visit every year. The rooms are very nice, although there are only double beds. The buffett meals are delicious with a lovely view. It is a very laid back place to visit and stay a few days.
