This facility has everything you need. If you are a glamper there is a place for you, but if you like to primitive camping there is also a place for you. Great place to Hike and explore.
Nice wooded lots. Three trails start in the tent campground, and a nice river runs along the back of the campground. It also has a large meadow in the center that’s great for frisbee. Really nice well maintained bathrooms and showers. They also have daily activities with the interpreter.
The park was great for hiking and pool time. The cafe was closed when we were there. We stopped by the restroom on our way in and have never been so disgusted. There were more flies and feces smeared everywhere to make anyone vomit. Everything else was fine.
What an amazing park! Stayed in Devils Den over spring break several years ago. Was cold and even snowed on one of the days that we were there. Camps sites are big and they have a fire pit, picnic table and a large gravel pit for the tents. Lots of hiking trails to explore and a river, if your brave enough to get in the freezing water.
The park rangers are great! Very knowledgeable and friendly.
This review is for the Butterfield Trail in Devils Den. You have to hike in to get to theses spots. If you start at the traditional Devils Den and park at the pedestrian bridge you have a nice challenging hike up to the back country portion of the park. You start hiking along a river and after a mile or so you start your upward journey. The trail is generally in good shape but if it has been raining, beware as some of the trail is also used for horses which makes the trail sometimes tough to make it through as it gets pretty mushy. My favorite spot is about halfway through right on a river that flows a blueish color that doesn't make you want to even filter and drink the water. The spots are level and secluded but you sometimes find trash as people don't abide by the leave no trace principle. I bring all my own water on the trail but there are a few spots you can filter. We have found many snakes here and some are poisonous. BEWARE! The geography has is pretty unique and flash flooding is common. Be very aware of your surroundings and watch the river if you are in a rain storm. You must check in at the ranger's station before you do any back country camping in the park. The trail is a pleasant longer trail in the area and is a must but I would recommend trying this trail in the Spring or late fall.
Clean swimming water, great hiking, one of my favorite spots!
The campsites are nice, and there are a lot to choose from, especially in the off season. It can get crowded and busy May-September. There is a park office with snacks, cool nature patches, and information about the area.
Good trails that range from 1 to 17 miles. Be sure to get a map so you take the right one.
This state park is challenging to locate, especially at night. Familiarize yourself with the directions and try to arrive before dark.
There are many campsites available in many different areas of the park. Most of the sites are very private, have nearby facilities with showers, fire pits, tables, and trash bins. The sites all have access to trails and are close to water activities. The trails that are available are challenging, offer spectacular views and some history. There is back country hiking available, the park prefers that you register for a permit 24 hours in advance to accessing the back country trails. Some trails available are appropriate for mountain biking, however depending on the popularity of the trail is the level of maintenance that the trail receives. This state park is excellent for families because there are plenty of activities available that interest young kids.
If you love hiking in rocky areas this is the place to go. Has a stream flowing where you can swim or kayak. Has all the hookups if you have a RV or if you want to tent camp it has this too. Book early if you know you will be in this area it if filled up most of the time.
Really really interesting places to explore with in the park
