  • We recently camped here for a ffee days and we absolutely loved it! The camp area was so peaceful and beautiful. The volunteers do an amazing job with keeping the place in good shape and everyone was so nice. We really enjoyed the trails and can't wait to come back with our canoe!
  • Stayed in the cabins,loved it! Great trails for hiking. We had a winter storm hit the area during our stay and we lost power :( Park rangers were awesome and brought us more blankets or offered to refund our stay for the nights we lost power. We came for the adventure so we stayed :) woke frozen but loved itπŸ’“β„ looking forward to our next stay...
  • Very nice quiet park. Lots of trails. Bathrooms very clean. Some sites are very spacious and they also have sites for handicapped. Great place to relax.
  • Don't come early if you have a reservation because they will not check you in until 3pm sharp. They do however let you roam the park if you happen to come early. I did and it was great! Great picnic area, the have a larger boat ramp with space to move about and a parking space.
  • This place is simply beautiful! Peaceful and idyllic are words that would accurately describe it. A great place to bring your family to have a day out or simply to take a long walk.
