With its pristine lakes, virgin pines, swimming beach, and wilderness-like setting, Scenic State Park is well deserving of its name. Here, visitors can hike the Chase Point Trail for hypnotic views of Coon and Sandwick Lakes and listen to the wind whistle through the giant pines. The park's overnight facilities include campsites (boat-in, drive-in, backpack), and a cabin. The historic lodge houses interpretive displays.

Camping: 93 Sites are located in two campgrounds; Chase Point and Lodge campgrounds. Chase Point campground is on a hill above the lake. Lake can be accessed by steps that lead to a boardwalk. Non-electric sites in this campground have a reasonable amount of screening between sites. The electric sites are more open. The Lodge campground sites are predominantly open with moderate amounts of screening at some sites. Chase Point campground is closest to park office. Lodge campground is closer to the beach and fishing pier. About 20 campsites are kept open for winter camping in the Chasepoint campground. These are electric sites.

Backpack Sites: 2 Sites are located about a mile from the parking area. They are secluded and on a small lake. Bring in your own drinking water. Sites have a wilderness toilet only. It is not enclosed.

Canoe Sites: 5 Sites can be accessed from Coon and Sandwick lakes. Four of these sites can also be accessed on foot, about a 2 to 2 1/2-mile hike from parking area. These are secluded, rustic sites. Wilderness toilets only. Ask at park for water availability.

Reservations: Recommended from Memorial Day through Labor Day.
