  • We took our kiddos camping here for the whole weekend. It was such a wonderful stay. Our kids loved it. Very kid friendly. Very clean park. And everyone was friendly. Had an amazing stay!!!!
  • Great state park. River close to camping area. We loved it. The dogs loved swimming all day
  • Camping here in the summer is a terrible idea. The campsites are incredibly close to each other, and a racetrack nearby runs late into the night on Friday and Saturday nights. Go somewhere else.
  • Great hiking trail. Cool waterfall. Nice little creek. Dog loved it!
  • Great place to go hang out with family and friends. Plenty of trails to walk and a great river to fish swim or float. Also great camp sites
