Just an okay state park
Chris Pearson

August 9, 2011
I've stayed in a number of state parks but by far this one's only average at best. It's clean and well-kept, but nothing really special about it. Lots of hiking trails, though, but not all of them are marked. The bathrooms are clean but some fixtures need updating. The sites are small so there may not be enough wiggle room for big rigs. No full hookups, just electric.

We stayed here in a Class C Motorhome.
