  • Thoroughly enjoyed our New Year's visit at this park. It is a small, quiet place to get away in the woods. Campsites are old and pads not very even but it was no problem for my small travel trailer in...  more »

  • Amazing park. Small but beautiful. Park staff (Mr. Crawford) was extremely helpful and helped our scouts immensely. Looking forward to return trip.
  • Wonderful spot to go camping at! The park is beautiful with a lot of history surrounding it. Hike trails are plenty and when I went they were having classes about owls, which was fun. The only thing that was confusing was how the trails were not very easy to navigate. Me and my gf had a map that they gave us and it was not in line with the markers there. We almost got lost. Despite this we had fun and I would definitely recommend it to anyone.
  • Loved the park it is really well kept and the trails are amazing. It's so calm and the pine trees provide really good shade. The campsites are small so if you have more than one tent for a campsite you might be a bit crowded unless they are for 6 people or less. Also we had no signal out there with att it was nice to not have phones to distract us but just in case of an emergency I feel it's something to know. The park doesn't sale wood for burning they have some that you can take free of charge but you have to cut it yourself. They do sale ice at headquarters but they close set at 4 or 4:30pm so if you need anything after that you will need to drive out to a store near hand it's not that close. Over all we did love the place kids had a lot of fun on trails and running around trees.
  • The staff are really friendly and very accommodating for children. The log cabin and the Mission are very interesting - be sure to ask about the Mission "scavenger hunt" for young kids to keep them interested. We took a walk by the pond and played on the playground for a bit, too. My boys said they want to come back and camp. I said we definitely will when it isn't summer!
  • Small park, so camping spots are limited. Reserve in advance is recommended. Small in this case is good. Trails are short and well maintained. I combined 2 & 3 trails into one. There are no bike trails, but they expect to have some in the future. The thing I liked the most was the serenity, listening to the wind blow through the tall Pines. Be sure to bring a hammock to enjoy the serenity.
