    We stayed near the entrance to the State Park Campground on 3rd place. Thus, we were relatively far away by the great families, who had got this here on Saturday. The walk on the "Boy Scout trail" between the steep plateau of table is beautiful. You can see bald eagles, deers and many small birds. Unfortunately blustered to the early morning into large groups and the washrooms were not very clean because of many people. The ride in the Park in is worth but in any case, as well as the view from Highway down in the ice-age nature.
