Lake Darling State Park is a wonderful little campground that we came across in the spring of 2009.  Since then, the campground and lake have undergone a restoration and remodeling program.  They did a soft opening in 2014 and had the official grand opening in 2015.  We finally made it back and updated the photos of the new campground.  The replaced he original fishing bridge with a newer structure, the reduced the number of campsites, but gave each campsite a bit more room, leveled most of the campsites so campers could make the most of the room they are given, replaced the old dump station, and completely redid all of the boat landings and parking areas.  We also noticed they they are putting new, what look to be year round cabins, up in the cabin rental area.  We were not able to get pictures of those, but keep your eye out for those to be available as well.

The pictures above are from 2015 after the campground and lake restoration project.  I could not find an online map of the campground to use for matching pictures to the campground, but I will work on developing one of my own.  In the meantime, ff you would like to see what maps are available, or have any questions about the campground, please follow the link below to the official website.
