We stayed at the park one night. The park is around 300 acres in size. The campsites are well spaced apart for privacy. All sites have a covered picknic table. The spaces are flat for parking. They have nice trails in the park. Trails even had bench seats every so often. You can hunt for rocks an take them home. The bathroom was nice and clean. They were very well kept. The showers were warm enough to be comfortable. There is lots of wildlife viewing. Lots of birds to see.
My family camped here in tents on the 4th of July. The park is beautiful, well maintained, safe, and the restrooms were spotless! We had an amazing view of the fireworks show taking place in the town below, and we had a wonderful time. I highly recommend this campground!
