We have been driving by this park for over 30 years. This weekend we met our camping friends there. They have a camper we do not. Called 2 months ago and the park ranger got us set up in a cabin... more »
We enjoyed this state park quite a lot. The low-strain hiking trails are lovely, with many interesting plants to appreciate. The information at the visitor's center is abundant. We had minimal difficulty getting started with a geocaching activity. The park map was easy to read, so we found the bathroom in time! The river access was clean and well maintained. I had no worries about my kids' safety in this area with common-sense precautions.
We were passing through the area and planned on staying here just a couple of days. The park is so nice and the sites are so spacious we extended our stay 4 days. It is a very quiet area with nice hiking trails or paved areas for bicycles. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Definitely will come agin when in the area.
