  • State Park was full due to holiday period. Fully understandable. However, we are doing the TransAm by bicycle. In all other state (including Washington State) and national parks rangers were always willing and successful to find a (small) tent spot for us for one night after a long bicycle day. In this particular case both rangers were not willing to help and suggested to cycle another 30 miles (!) or just book a hotel. Full is full, those are the rules. First negative encounter with rangers during our coast to coast trip.
  • It's a nice family friendly camping site. RV camping, tent camping sites are separated. We stayed near where newer restroom. It was very nice and clean. Also there is a playground near camp site. Very well maintained and clean.
  • Great place for kids and groups. Has token operated showers, running water, full hookups, regular camps, and a very nice park. It has a playground and horseshoes. It has a few trails. It has places to reserve for large groups. Discover Pass required. The website is nice for reservations.
  • Love this state park. We had a great presentation put on by Ranger Laura Busby. Thank you Laura for a fun evening!
  • This place is beautiful you can bring your dog to the park aswell it's right next to the Humane Society so there are lots of others with their pets also. Of you have not been here you need to.
