A great park with one major downside

There's no doubt this State Park is beautiful, with its lovely scenery and nice trails. The sites are smallish but not really a problem unless you've got a toad or a big rig. The hookups work, and the wi-fi signal is strong enough. The dealbreaker here is the bathhouse is usable but could use a more thorough cleaning.

We stayed here in a Popup Trailer.
