I agree, last time I was at the beach there was a TON of dog droppings that needed to be picked up...GROSS
September 6 Dont waste your time
This is a crappy fishing hole, there may be signs at the ramp saying ENTIRE LAKE, NO WAKE..but the big boats cannot read..worst run park ever..you cannot fish the perimeter for the tons of weed. the lake is overrun with bluegill..seriously don't waste your time....
August 6 Multi Species Beach Amazing by keith
Had a blast swimming with my dogs, noticed some seagulls there too, and a few insects, and of course the fish that were in the water. There was some Yuppie there whining about dogs at the beach. Otherwise we all had a great day, lovely park!
July 22 dogs swimming in people swimming area! by Roland
I dont know the rules on pets mingling and social areas in the park but everytime (2) i bring my family there always dogs in people swimming area, and even in beach and water.
July 15 great site
E camp alot everywhere. We love the sites with trees and greenery departing the sites. Feels private love it. Lake at fishing pier little weedy.
July 5 awesome fishing!!! by JLP
went there for a day fishing trip and the fishing was excellent. Caught some pretty big bass on top water baits (the hula popper works best). Found this place by accident and have been returning every summer for the past 3 years. park is very clean and peaceful. Our family enjoyed all the wildlife and friendly staff.....
June 19 Loved the Park by Ron Antes
Very clean and was pretty quiet for a full park. Loved everything about the park and had a wonderful time. We will make this a regular camping trip once or twice a season.
March 31 Horse and hiking trails by S. Raymor
Wow , what a goldmine. I walk my dog religously and this week we went to Sleepy Hollow. We saw a coon sunning himself in a large shag bark hickory ,two cranes setting up house.Heard a man running his beagles ( they did a remarkable job too !!) I will return very often. Nice well kept trails and they were marked well too. What a deal for ten dollars with your car plate. Thank You to the DNR and the Park manager.
August 23 Somewhat disappointed by v17
Sites are too close to each other. Seems like not much privacy as we could constantly hear other conversations around us and both cars & people walking by our site at all times. Some campsites had a lot of trees, others were barren. Make sure you check beforehand. Facilities were ok. Overall we had a good time, but the campground left a lot to be desired. Would not go back.

May 12 Great outdoors !! by Piyas Bandyopadhyay
Friendly staff - very very friendly
-*Super clean bathrooms
*great campsites *Mosquitos, racoons and poison ivys - did NOT bother us.. may be because of the time in year. **
Not so great -again may be due to when we visited
* Bathrooms too cold.
* No soap in bathroom (That is true).
* Bring at least 30 ft power cord.
* if you are hiking make sure you wear proper hiking shoes and not just sneakers.

Tips: There are lot of firewood around, do not just buy before looking around
July 17 Really nice place,but bring bug spray!! by dyction
Large campground,a lot of trees,and privacy.Walking trails to beautiful Lake Ovid and park. No soap dispensers in bathroom.Beware of poison ivy! Raccoons / mosquitoes can be a problem. Other than that, it was great.Would love to go back.

August 20 We will return! by pjk0326
Loved the secluded sites with lots of trees, shade and privacy. Plenty of walking trails. We were warned to watch out for poison ivy so that would be a concern if you have small children. No soap in bathrooms! Definitely need long electric cord!
August 5 Very nice park by lsphillips
We stayed for 6 nights. Sites have a lot of trees. Make sure you have long electric cord.We will return
