This is a small state park but very nice. The property is very scenic, and the campsites are secluded.
The park has a large fishing dock and RV campsites. They also have a tenting area that is separate from RV sites. The campground also offers hiking trails, a swimming beach and a small store for boat rentals, nature-oriented gifts, toys and books, souvenirs, snacks and fishing and camping supplies.
There are really a lot of things to do outdoors at the park… from hiking (a 2.4-mile easy hike around the lake. Work a little harder on the 1.2-mile Mountain View Trail, which takes you to the highest point in the park), fishing (crappie, bass, catfish, perch or chain pickerel), and boating (Rent a boat or bring your own, they have paddle boats, paddle boards, canoes, kayaks (single and tandem) and flat-bottom boats. Life jackets and paddles are included.)
This is a very clean park and only a short ride from Jefferson where you can enjoy a ride down the river or ride a steam engine. The pre-Civil War town of Jefferson is 30 miles southeast of the park.
