|The Buggs Island Overlook|
On the second day of the stay we decided to hike part of the 20 miles worth of trails. We hiked out of the cabin area to the Buggs Island Overlook (we took the loop). The hike took us at least four hours, and that was with minimal breaks. Mark was a little disappointed that the overlook wasn't more spectacular, I was just glad we had reached the end and could start the journey back. We think that from the cabins to the end of the PMT (with the loop) was around 13 miles. We did find a couple old foundations along the way. There were no markers or indication in the park what the foundations were for.
In the spring, summer and fall there is tent camping available. They have the road closed in the winter so I couldn't really scope out the lots. There is not a designated swimming area in the park despite being on the lake. There are boat ramps and plenty of places for fishing though. The cabins are pretty standard to the State Parks...no TV and no phone ;-) We thought cabin #3 might have the best view of the lake.
