My brother and I took a day trip to the Lafayette area to scout the camp-ground at the SP. If you love rolling prairies, this is the place for you. Miles of rolling prairies with an enormous bike path. You have to abso love the sun to enjoy this park. Even the camp-sites struggle to have an ounce of shade. The park does sport a half pint water park to shake the heat off on a hot day and facilities are amazingly clean and ship shape, but for the life of me I can't figure out why there wasn't better planning involved with the camp-ground. I would not even consider one site as partial shade. One can still enjoy the miles of rolling prairies (which are beautiful in their own rite) without having to feel like your camping in an easy bake oven and having no escape. In their defence I can say they did add a nice touch with an operating 1800's farm/homestead... but as my brother said on the way through... "They had to do something to help draw people in, it's more than apparent that there was some serious errors in judgement here."
