Great State Park...arranged nicely so neighbors aren't right on top of you. Well maintained....loved the amount of green grass. The lake this year is really low, lowest I have seen it in a long, long time.

Potholes is one of the nicest parks around. Beautifully maintained and lots of amenities. It takes a discovery pass or a 10 dollar charge to get in and it's a bit out of the way. I think this is a plus. Keeps it more for...More

Plenty of camping locations for trailers or tents. Plenty of facilities to keep things clean. Great fishing, even if you don't have a boat. No brainer to spend a couple days exploring and relaxing.

There are no designated paved biking trails, road riding and gravel trail riding only. The area is pretty flat, close to water, nice hills for mountain biking on south side. DO
