  • I wanted to like this place. The water in the shower got hot, the disc golf course was really fun. But if you have any issues or questions with your reservation, good luck! The host doesn't know anything and is quick to say so and offer nothing. The park rangers were pretty non existent and there is no "yellow phone" like at other state parks. The spot we were at (27, don't pick it!) had the road on 3 sides and was on a hill. We had to shim the picnic table because everything kept sliding off. Plus the road noise.... all night. Maybe if you're in a pinch stay there for one night but I wouldn't stay for longer.
  • We've been here several times for the blues music festival that used to be held next door to Brooks Memorial. Had a family reunion here 5 years ago. Great place for group gatherings. Decent showers 👌 & well maintained. Keep y'all's dog food contained though. You guessed it...bears visit happened to one of our fellow campers. Yikes! Oh yeah, there is a RV dump site too.
