When my kids where young we camped there often. Lots room for kids. It has space for larger gatherings, for family or office outing. You do need to make reservations, but if you plan ahead, there should be no problem.

This is a lovely little state park with a beautiful covered picnic building that was originally built for mine storage. There are other covered picnic shelters, plenty of tables, and some lovely trails.

One of my favorite places for a walk. Nice trail along water. Park also offers a large campground area and kayak rentals. There is a huge building for large gatherings and picnic tables. Park pass is required.

We happened on this park by accident and it is a lovely little park with playground for children, the beach and a cute little place for breakfast or lunch just above the park. Sweet family place.

There are 49 camping/RV spots. It's very nice to walk through it. It's not really scenic. But drive along beach drive on the water very scenic!

There is water where you empty your holding tank. This is the water source during the winter season. Other than that there are water spigots at various spots in the campground area- one for every 4 camp spots.
