  • If you're looking for a great camping experience, look no further. All of the rangers were amazing & had helpful information to make the trip more enjoyable. You can capture beautiful photos of the sunrise & sunset right from the park. The restrooms & showers were extremely clean. There is a community center in the middle of all of the campsites that has boardgames and chairs to relax in. Down the way there is a beautiful plantation house that overlooks the river & gives tours. There is a nice playground with pavilions, grills, & even horseshoes. Will definitely be back.
  • Enjoyed our short stay here. The mansion tour is interesting and the price for an electric site is less than most State Parks. A building is available with rocking chairs and games for rainy days. We look forward to returning when the trails can be cleared from hurricane damage.
