  • The park is nice however there is no full hook up for campers. They do have electricity but not sewer hookup which leaves the reason why I have it just a ok. The restrooms are very dirty and very hot. While I realize that this is a good size camp ground they could have maintenance check on the bathrooms several times a day. The toilets and showers and sinks need a good cleaning.
  • I live locally, and visit the park frequently. It's a great place to hike with kids, there's a cool little playground for them to play on. There are boat rentals and two small lakes, and the living history farm is fantastic. The buildings have been kept in their original state, and there are plaques throughout for self guided tours.
