We use the fishing docks at Richmond lake all the time. Always catch something. They are well kept and easy to access with close parking. Hot in the afternoon sun, but really nice in the mornings.

This lake and it's amenities are just amazing that very few find it. It sprawls and has a youth camp with thousands of evergreen trees. Has a resort and restaurant -- excellent food.

Have been taking my boys to fish here since they were 2 years old. The fishing dock and boat dock, plus a small "beach" area offer enough variety for the kids to feel like they're choosing where to fish. There's ample parking and an outhouse.

There aren't any amazing things her. No boat, paddle boat, jet ski rentals...simply a few camping spots, small rocky beach and public bathrooms. There is a small "hiking" path, but it only takes about 20 min to go thru.

Richmond Lake State Park isn't huge but it is rich with opportunities. Three separate areas include boat ramp, campground, and Forest Drive Unit with trails for hiking, biking, and cross-country skiing, as well as disk golf.
