Visitor Comments, Memories and Reviews
September 24 First day of Fall 2015! by Donna
First time visitors and what a beautiful park! We will definitely be back. We drove from Lafayette, In, But we never came across a park employee, no one at the gates to take our entry money? Park was quiet, clean, lots to explore and the shelters were very nice.
May 4 great fun
So much fun
February 23 I love camping here. by Ashley
I loe to camp here. My family and I come every other weekend, expect in winter. There are a few things that need changed, but other than that the park is great. It is a great place to camp, fish, hike, bike, and hang out with family or friends. Very safe and fun!! Very Clean!
