  • Definetely not a easy climb but worth the effort for the view, and not to mention some of the smaller waterfalls along the trail. 
  • This was a great place to go for a hike we enjoyed this site very much. the hike was not to bad at all and found it very enjoyable. 
  • My family visited over a weekend. It is an absolutely beautiful place with great things to see. The creek area has great views with large rock cliffs. There is a balancing rock, falls, and ice mine. J...  more »

  • It is pretty impressive how many cool little spots are in this park, considering its size. There are ruins of an old iron furnace, a CCC camp, historic cemetery from the 1800's, Copperas Rock, Balanced Rock, Raven Rock, the Ice Mine, old schoolhouse ruins, overlooks, picnicking, camping and hiking trails. The campground is less than 30 sites in size and mostly shaded with a few more open sky sites. There are vault toilets, but no showers... It appears all the sites have electric hookups.
  • Great place for hiking camping and swimming. Could use some flush toilets, the outhouses smell disgusting. Don't book a site in close proximity to them.
  • Beautiful place for hikers. Terrain is a bit rocky but it is beautiful! Great hike for a cool fall day!
  • Lots to do, and very scenic. Always a good time
  • Unbelievable place to take your family so beautiful
