Not a bad park by any means. However I live in Northern Wisconsin and am "spoiled" by having dozens of state campgrounds and national forest campgrounds in my back yard. Compared to these campgrounds parks like Coon Fork seem almost like going to town. I prefer a more of the beaten path backwoods camping experience. However with that being said this is a great place to take the kids. Plenty of stuff to do. Every thing from swimming, biking, they even have some playground equipment. Overall not a bad place to go. It is always clean and stays pretty quiet. Lots of good memories from weekends spent exploring.
