  • Good trails, nice camp sites. We'll be getting back very soon. Get a good hiking app with trail maps and you're golden!
  • Kettletown State Park was a fun experience. The park has a few trails, and this review is of the brook trail. The trail was a medium difficulty, especially since this day the ground was wet and the trail is covered in rocks. The trail runs right next to a brook, and the drop off is quite steep so watch your footing. The brook trail brings you to a fork, and you can either walk to the beachhead area or go down the boardwalk to follow the water out a bit. Overall I really enjoyed this park.
  • Rustic camping, spacious sites, and a true experience with nature. Perfect for families!
  • Great 2.5 mile loop trail for a quick hike. Go clockwise to get your heart rate up quickly. Ridge trail connects to Jackson Cove Park in Oxford.
  • Love this place. Take mosquito spray!
