  • Extremely disappointed in this "park". We were supposed to stay here 2 nights. We arrived after hours the 1st night to find no paperwork or map left for us as every other state park & private rv park does for late checkin. We drove around this "park" and it is nothing but a boat ramp with a parking lot! They turned parking spaces into "camping". You literally pulled into a parking space that they numbered and called "camping". We left and found a hotel room and choose to go to CO for the rest of our vacation. I do NOT recommend this park for any camping or families.
  • It was a fun trail but a little hard for my 3 year old. Beautiful scenery and fun adventure for the kids to follow the dinosaur tracks! Would recommend going early to beat the heat.
  • Nice fishing.
