  • Great views, historic homes and buildings. Good hiking trails and very nice people. The campground looks as if it is hardly used. Spot 29 is the best. Large playground and again not much action. If you are looking for a quiet place to stay this is it. Has a lake as well. If you are at the campsite you might see Betty. She checks in on the campers. Also the groundskeeper that worked the last Saturday in July was very nice. Didn't get his name but seemed very conscious about his work and still had time for the visitors.
  • The "stone house" was once my Great Grand parents home. Interesting place when everything is open for viewing.
