  • Every Year I plan a huge camping trip for me and friends in October. Each time we go to a new park's pioneer area. we LOVED Sloppy Floyd. there were so many trails to go on, the pioneer site is right next to the water, and the bathroom was donated by a boyscout troop so its not so creepy feeling (still essentially a pit privy, but much nicer.) We love to stay at the pioneer spots so we don't disturb any other campers and essentially ends up cheaper if you have the amount of people. the area was clean and we left it the same way we found it. the park rangers were very nice.
  • Lived in the area for 22 years (my whole life) and my parents took me here growing up. I've never had a bad time at "Sloppy" Floyd. Great place for a family outing
  • Another great state park. Hiking, camping, fishing, and paddle boats?! What more could an outdoorsy person ask for?
  • One of my favorite places to go hike. Beautiful scenery and kid friendly. Lots of outdoor lover options to choose from. I love it!!!
  • Great trails and a really nice marble mine remnants. Didn't have time to take advantage of all of the amenities but I'll definitely be going back.
