  • The hike up Mount Blue was a fun one, the sign at the trail said says 1.6 miles each way however my phone tracked ~5.25 miles round trip, it certainly felt like more than 3.2 miles. That being said, t...  more »

  • August 2016-@ site 25L. Larger site is worth it for a large family tent. Park is well maintained & the showers are especially nice. My only complaint were the multiple piles of dog poo left @ our site. I feel the mess should've been cleaned by park staff when they spiffy up the site before new campers arrive, however, for those inconsiderate enough to leave a mess behind, there should be a dog waste fee that's credited when the site is checked. Overall, we enjoyed our stay & the park is a beautiful area--we would visit again :-)
  • Lovely park. Beautiful scenes and in a beautiful area.
  • Great hike to the Mt. Blue summit, but they need better marked directions to the trailhead. Was lost for an hour trying to get there.
  • Gorgeous park, beautiful lake and just minutes to Tumbledown mountain
  • The campground staff was very unfriendly and downright rude, especially Bruce. He gave us a hard time and mocked us for leaving a few items out at our campsite. The lady behind the desk was also a complete snob when we attempted to rent a kayak. They rubbed us the wrong way and I have no intentions of ever returning because of them.
