Great State Park. We have a 30' rig and had no problems getting in or out. Full hookups were great. the hiking trails were well marked and great fun. we had a skunk visit the campground that evening but thankfully he moved along. We would definitely stay again if in the area.
Wow, the best bathrooms and showers I've ever seen at a park, and this is a state park! It's a small state park, but nice spaces, with only $.75 cent washer and dryer in each of the 2 bath/shower houses. Great two pavilions with one having massive fire chimney and tables. Great trails for mountain bikes, hiking, or horseback. A lake and an office where you can buy shirts/hats/pins if so inclined. Buy firewood at the Pilot gas station before arriving, it's treated. We loved this place, though it was mainly a place to rest 2 nights before moving on toward home from a long 27 days RVing.
