According to both visitor reviews (on websites like Yelp and TripAdvisor) and national websites (like Fox News), Clinton Lake is heaven on earth for those trying to beat the heat, take a hike, or embark on new adventures. Whether you’re building sand castles on the beach, splashing around the designated swim area, or exploring the park’s natural beauty, there is no shortage of things to see and do at Clinton State Park. (Other reasons to love the area? For starters, it houses the largest marina in the state, nearly 400 well-maintained campsites and like we said before, some of the cleanest swimming water in the state.)
