Cliffside is one of our most well known parks because of the number of visitors camping at the 92 site campgrounds. The camping area has electric and water sites and can accommodate anything from tents to large RV's with slide-outs. There are bathrooms with showers and play areas for the campers. Many local families also use the campgrounds for "get-away" weekends to relax by the lake. For the non-campers, Cliffside offers baseball/softball fields, tennis, basketball and soccer fields as well as 2 shelter areas with picnic tables, grills and electric. The bike trail is nearby, so there are many ways to enjoy this northside park.
