    No less than 16 ponds and the state’s only horse camping area make this nearly 15,000-acre park stand out. A favorite with freshwater swimmers, it offers five camping areas along the shores of four of the ponds, ranger-led walks, and interpretive programs. Sites are available for RVs and tents, and the campground has three yurts built within the last few years.

    This resort-like park is far from roughing it, with an indoor pool, three outdoor pools, three hot tubs, activity lodge, a disc golf course, and massages offered, plus the more traditional amenities of a private campground, such as playgrounds, sports, and a dog park. Spend the night at an RV or tent site, in a furnished cabin or yurt, or in a rustic three-sided shelter.
