  • Beautiful campground with a very easy check-in process. Only $10 a night. First come first served for the campsites so you may want to get there early. Multiple swimming areas. Charcoal grills and fire pits at every tent site. Low concrete bridge often has some water flowing over it. Clean bathrooms. Showers with individual stalls available.
  • First of all, when navigating make sure you navigate to the caverns then follow the signs to whichever part of the recreation area you are visiting. Navigating to the rec area takes you to it's mailing address in Mountain View. What is shown in the map above is in the town. Beautiful park. Camping ground was well maintained and had a nice beach. Another well kept swimming area is available as well. The springs and the dam are well worth visiting. The cave tour was amazing and really beautiful. Wait around for the slightly longer one, it's worth it.
  • Awesome location! Highly recommended.
  • Fantastic state Park. Tour is great. Be sure to go to the Springs.
  • Beautiful place and amazing staffing. Love the cave tour
