  • Love the trails an the scenery of Little Buffalo its a great family place. Only downfall is swimming in the lake is prohibited, but they have a public pool. This does cost money an if you choose to go on a hot day it will be crowed..very crowded.
  • Campground hosts are always excellent. Best bath houses of all the state parks I've been to. Pool is a great time.
  • It's a great place to have your family for a picnic or just hang out. However during the summer months expect to have a decent amount of traffic.
