Was here with family, we utilized the hiking trail around the very small lake. Trail was challenging with lots of ups and downs. This would have been more fun on bikes. They have very few RV sites...

It's a great park, like other people said there's a little playground out front, and what look like cool camping spots. I prefer day hiking, and while there weren't any well-marked trails that I could find, following the deer trails was pretty awesome. Definitely gonna be going back despite it being a half hour away. Always saw the sign for it on my way up hwy 25 but never had the time until now, but I'm glad I went.
Upon arrival the check in office was locked and the blinds closed. We knocked and didn't get an answer. As we were getting back in our SUV, a man opened the door of the office and said in a disgruntled tone if he could help us? We replied that we had a reservation. He then claimed that he had the door locked and the blinds closed because he was checking email ! Really???. ..to check email? LoL !!! I guess we "interrupted" him and therefore was due the far from a warm greeting. When we asked where our campsite was, he said " Just go on down, you'll find it". The campground was empty for the 2 nights we were there which for us was great. Anyhow, I only give it 2 stars because of the greeting we received from Mr. Onlycheckingemail guy.
