A great State Park that offers a beach, pavilions, facilities, camping and multiple trails to choose from (short to longer). The park has a lot to offer for those who want to spend a day at the beach, take a small paddle or those who want to explore some trails. You can camp here as well as visitjust for the day and enjoy the park. The park staff and the Ranger are always very helpful and welcoming. In 2012 and 2013 they also took part in the NYS Sara-Cap Geocache Challenge.

Did this last month. Did all trails but 1 and plan on going back to do that and go camping. Buildings being renovated. Was amazing. Well marked trails. Be prepared to spend the day. It was that good.

Things have improved since the other Tara wrote! After camping for a weekend, my family and I will be coming back. The firewood is kiln dried and in bags now - they even have a small camping store in case you forgot something (we did - matches!). The staff is excellent and the park itself is beautiful. We only wish that the bathrooms near the beach were a little newer.......beware!

We have visited the park many times from camping here, paddles on the lake, events at the pavilions, taking part in the NYS Sara-Cap Geocaching Challenge to day hikes. There are many trails to choose from - some are short, some are longer and some even take you by some historic structures.

I do not like this place....we went camping once when it stormed and and they sold us wet wood. The trails are bland...the lake is small...and you get a very uneasy feeling there....I give this place 1 star. Nothing exciting going on there.
