Hills Creek State Park reviews
If you are looking for a nice quiet place for a picnic this park will fill the bill. Kind of out of the way to find but worth the effort. We even ran into a detour and had to drive about 8 miles... more »
Took a picnic lunch here and enjoyed a lovely view. Then headed down to the beach. Changing rooms and bathrooms were very clean. The sandy beach is small, but there is plenty of grass to throw down.... more »
Camped in site 42 for the Labor Day weekend. Had a wonderful time. The campground is very well maintained and very clean. Rest rooms excellent. The area we were in was peaceful and quiet. Will be back.
Honestly, the park is small, with only 5 miles of trails. But it's BEAUTIFUL! I camped in the yurts, and it was very comfortable - bunk beds with decent mattresses, a nice indoor table and chairs, full fridge and a cook top. No running water, but the bath house is literally right down the road. Outdoor fire ring and picnic tables. Definitely coming back - it's so peaceful!
