  • One of our absolute favorite places to visit!! The beauty and peace there just seeps into your spirit and allows you to just "reset" yourself both mentally and physically. The hiking can be either easy or hard, biking is good, and I always enjoy the resident flock of Canadian geese on the pond by the campsites. Good clean bath houses also. Great all around park experience. 😁
  • Secluded fairly well maintained state park with friendly staff. Great for bird watching and hiking! Pet friendly except buildings. Pool is only open Thursday through Sunday seasonally. Overall pleasant inexpensive stay!
