  • Lots of history and beautiful views. Lots to see. Nice campgrounds with showers and great hiking trails. 
  • We checked out the Park recently and will definitely come back for a camping trip. So much history and scenic beauty. Campground is tucked deep into the park. Great for hikes. 
  • Nice mountain to visit and play and relax in. It has many lakes to swim, fish, and kayak in. Trails for exploring and majestic scenery. Old mining town nestled up in the thick pine forest. There r golf courses, wine bars, nice restaurants near by. It's tranquil, relaxing, and so much to do for everyone. You can easily have a whole week here and have something different to do every day. I had a very nice time here. It was my second time here. And I am marking it as one of my favorite places.
  • Clean, quiet, and beautiful
