  • I really enjoyed spending some quiet time here. The campground is not very large but that makes it nice. Everything is well maintained. This is a great place to relax.
  • Great small park. There is a lake for fishing and swimming, it even has a nice sand beach. Plenty of campsites for RV or rent campers. Check out the flatrock trail for amazing views of the Cumberland valley. It is a moderate 2 mile hike from the nature center, just follow the signs to the trail head.
  • There's no store on the camp site so make sure you bring all the necessary items. The beach was closed and we could not swim even tho it was a really hot and humid weekend. The campsite was very clean and very woodsy the hike to Flat Rock is hard and challenging, but well worth the view.
  • Love the view of Flat Rock! It is also a Great Place to have Picnics! Many good memories at this place. Definitely try it out!
  • Love the beach and the kids always ask to go! Has been our spot for years. Great family fun!
