I hiked the trails at Meridian State Park solo on a Sunday afternoon and then camped overnight.  The park was fairly empty as the weekend campers and people with day passes were leaving, so I was able to get a scenic camping spot (#30) right on the lake shore.

The trails run throughout the park, but most of the trails go along and around the lake.  There is a separate, looping nature trail, however, above the lake that takes you on a short trip through some scenic woods.

Some parts of the trail are not very well-maintained and overgrown with vegetation, but nothing too bad.
