Glendalough State Park Reviews & Ratings

  • Love the hike around the lake. A good part of it is paved so easy to walk. Pretty, peaceful, quiet. Today, late season I mostly had the park to my self but for a few folks camping in their tents. Just what I was needing to refresh and soothe my soul. Spent some time just sitting by the lake too, lovely, just lovely!

  • Nice park for swimming, biking and camping. There are no sites for trailers or RVs. There is a cart in campground with 4 cabins and 20 some tent sites. It's nice to not have vehicles passing your site all day and evening but it's a bit more work setting up and tearing down. They have showers and flush toilets. That being said, the cart in camp sites were not the best camping we have experienced because it was noisy and had no air movement through it. I think the tree canopy traps sound and the lay of the land alows it to carry a long way. Also the sites are not very private. It works though if you bring ear plugs. We have also stayed in the yurts. We tried them in the fall. They are interesting, but be prepared for a long hike to get there. They are also in direct sun most of the day so it was very hot inside even with daytime temps in the low 70's.We were too hot all night so I can't imagine what summer is like. In the end, we love this park for day trips to swim, kayak and use the bike trail into Battle Lake.

  • Beautiful park with lots of fun things to do. Great location for individuals, couples, families, or even parties. Beautiful lake that is so clear and clean. There is a river that connects the lakes, and a hiking trail along the river. Great area for biking, hiking, camping, fishing, swimming, and so much more.

  • Best place. Family friendly. Nice trails, beach and crystal clean lake water. It's a perfect camping place!

  • Excellent scenery and lots of activities. Kayaks, canoes and row boats to allow a person to enjoy the lake. Great swimming beach and places to enjoy an outdoor meal.
