The best camping near Kincaid Lake State Park guide

Overview

About

Escape to Kincaid Lake State Park and you may never want to go back to a city again. A quiet park, the lake is surrounded by untouched woodlands giving you the feeling of seclusion, a feeling that is pretty hard to come by nowadays. Take your boat, or rental, out on the lake and set sail, letting the wind lift your hair and spirits. Hike the trails to fully enjoy nature thriving. Hit the golf course, or if you’re not quite ready to tee-off, have fun at the mini-golf course! Tennis, volleyball, swimming, any and all sports are welcome! Your one-day trip might just have to be extended.

When to go

The ideal time to visit Kincaid Lake State Park is during the spring and fall when the weather is mild and the natural scenery is at its peak. Summer months bring warmth and a full bloom of park life, but also larger crowds and busier trails. Winters can be chilly, making some activities less accessible, so plan your trip accordingly to make the most of this scenic haven.

Know before you go

  • Check the weather forecast and dress appropriately for seasonal changes to ensure a comfortable visit.
  • Be aware of park hours, typically from 8:30am to 5pm, and plan your activities within this timeframe.
  • Review the park's photo and drone policy before capturing your memories, respecting wildlife and fellow visitors.
  • Consider purchasing a gift card for park amenities or to share the experience with others.
  • Volunteer opportunities are available for those who wish to give back to the park community.
