  • I went camping here in November to see the sky with minimal light pollution. We reserved one of the astronomy pads and the view was breathtaking. It was an awesome experience. My only real complaint here is that it took us some time to figure out where the astronomy pads actually are. We arrived after hours and the maps that were available didn't actually label the astronomy pads. Other than that, it was a really cool experience and I definitely recommend this place if you want to be close to nature.
  • We went here to see the Milky Way, and it was amazing. We initially booked a specific camping pad for watching the stars, but one of the volunteers was very helpful and offered to move us to another area he recommended. We didn't use the showers, but everyone else said they were very nice. The bathrooms were very clean. All of the staff was very friendly. Being in the middle of nowhere was amazing. We will be back here to camp again.
  • What a great park. Always get great nature photographs.
  • Come for the peace, quiet, and tranquility or the beautiful landscape for equestrian riding, either reason will not leave you lacking.
  • This place is so far from light pollution! So dark and amazing. Definitely recommend visiting here for anyone who likes stargazing. There are plenty of animals out and about as well. A small family of bunnies lives right next to the astronomy pad and are absolutely adorable!
