Nice Surprises at This Park!
Besides being a typically beautiful, well-maintained state park, some of the campsites come with decks. And, another nice surprise, GREAT WiFi (18 down, 12 up). There's also a lodge (nice motel) with a restaurant, a marina, and a beach area on this big lake. Be prepared for unlevel sites (this seems to be a Kentucky thing I've found). Have leveling blocks with you.
