This is a great little spot and pretty close to home. They have approximately 10 walk in campsites available on a first-come first serve basis. They do allow reservations, but do you want to get there early to get a good spot. I arrived at 1:06 PM, and check in is at 1 PM, there were already three campers ahead... More

I used to head to Fort Yargo park frequently, and found it a great place to go for many different activities. There's a lake to paddle around on, complete with a small beach and fishing areas, safe roads to walk or bike on, and a great trail system to hike, run, or mountain bike on. At the moment, the lake... More

If you just want to go somewhere to relax, take a hike and have a picnic this is your place. places next to the lake to grill and enjoy the scenery. summer time not to bad to go to the beach and work on the tan and to cool off.

This is an absolutely beautiful park. I came here on my first camping and hiking experience and it has been amazing. The park is huge and very clean and quiet. The park host was always available for us to buy firewood ($5 for 12 pieces). Clean camp sites, plenty available at 25$/night. The walking/hiking trails were so long and had... More

This park charges $5 per car but there was nobody at the gate the day we went. They have beautiful trails to walk through, a floating dock for putting in a row boat, a bridge the crosses over onto an island where you can fish.

First time to FYSP and had an excellent experience. Want to reserve a Yurt, but they were sold-out the week(s) we planned to visit. The Ranger suggested we try the Adventure Cabins. Great choice! The ACs were still in new condition and well maintained. Two bedroom, one bath with a full kitchen and large great room. Screened in porch with... More

We only visited the fishing area of the park. Plenty of room for bank fishing. Easy paths & terrain to get to the bank. Several picnics tables available & plenty of parking. Fish were biting.

There is heavy traffic and trains running all night long and you will hear everyone of them. Good luck on getting any sleep if you are camping. There are amenities galore, every sort of fast food restaurant imaginable within a few minutes drive so you will not go hungry but as a place to get away from it all, forget... More
