It’s time to choose sides for the battle of the century… or at least to figure out which campground at Locust Lake State Park is right for you. On the northern side of the lake you’ll find the tent-only campground, whose amenities include a playground for the kiddos, and easy access to the lake’s swimming area. On the southern side of the lake you’ll find the larger trailer campground. This campground has not one, but two playgrounds and convenient access to hiking trails. So which side will you choose?
