  • Cozy, quiet and rustic campground with great woodsy pull through spots for RV's. It's a really pretty park with a few short hiking trails. Great for 1-2 nights. There is no camp store or firewood...

  • My daughter and I walked the trail with her dog. The trail is definitely not accessible to strollers. I also wouldn't recommend young children unless you are willing to carry them for most of it...

  • It’s a nice place to go and hike or just relax. Long ago they thought the water had healing ability and I see some people still believe that as I saw several people waiting to fill gallon jugs with the water. You can take up to two gallons per person in your family. It tastes like water from a well. I saw one woman standing in the springs. They have a mini golf course which is nothing spectacular or picture worthy but will provide a good challenge. The employees were extremely friendly and helpful.
  • Absolutely loved this park! Parking is just $5. We were just making a quick visit, but you can camp if you want. There was a small mini golf course, which looked like the campers there had access to clubs and balls. The lake was beautiful and peaceful and had multiple people fishing. There is a playground for younger kids and plenty of space to enjoy a walk, throw a football or simply enjoy the outdoors Now for the waterfall! Or should I say waterfalls! The walking trails in the other side were impressive. The short walk asking the side of the river and waterfalls/ rapids was really fun. Your even had a spot or two where the spray from the waterfall cooled you off! Definitely worth a quick stop or a longer overnight stay.
