“step back in history!”

Many mapping services (including Google Maps, Mapquest, and Apple Maps) are providing incorrect driving directions to the park. Use Exit 178/SR 43 north of Lafayette to access the park. Do not use SR 225. There is no park entrance and the road has a one-lane bridge with a weight restriction.

Stayed in the campground for the 1st time this weekend. It is beautiful and the aquatic park was wonderful for such a hot day yesterday! Plus it only cost $3/person...sweet! Great bike trails in the park and a nice playground too. The bathhouse was in excellent condition. We'll definitely be back!

Excellent State Park – 3rd visit now
Most recent stay was June 6th 2017 –~ We camp in a Little Rig "Tear Drop” style RV only 15' long w/o toilet or shower ~ plus we like to eat outdoors using the picnic table and set up our dining canopy for sun and weather protection and thus rely on condition of campgrounds facilities and being nearby our site ~ so our critique is focused in that area

Liked our site #210, (electric only) was in newer section of park right next to restroom albeit it had no shade trees unlike the older section that did. Modern restroom/shower building; very roomy with ample # of stalls with full tiled walls was clean and well kept. Each stall had bench in changing area and ample hooks for towels and clothes. Nice conveniences but it would have been better if there were rubber floor mats as you exit shower to keep feet off wet floor. Communal sink area had shelves for toiletries beneath each mirror but no hooks for hand towels and no paper towels for cleanup after use leaving sinks somewhat messy.

Overall grounds were well cared for; grassy areas surrounded sites that were large and flat with gravel and level and good distance way from neighboring sites. Minimal vegetation between sites for privacy but time will tell. This state park gets a high rating and will return when in the area.
