We haven't been here in years, and glad we made it back. The campground is quiet, most of the sites are well spaced out. Most sites are well shaded. more »

We took the kids to Greenwood on hot days. It's a fun place to swim and play in the sand. We also took hikes on the many trails and saw many different birds and a few deer. more »

What a great little place, swimming in a lake with a sand beach, lots of grills and picnic tables, nicely marked nature trails and easy hikes. some awesome scenery. A Historic village to explore. A really great place!!!!!

I've been camping here for 25 plus years. Love that the spots are wooded and semi secluded. Bath house is wonderful and they do a great job of keeping it clean.

Very interesting little place. The park is best experienced by dropping in on the historical demonstrations in the forge. It is also a great base for exploring the larger Rothrock State Forest. If you like cold water swimming this is the place for you.
