Great State Park!

Nice secluded place! Very well kept. Facilities are clean and love that they recycle. Sites ate well spaced apart. Pretty level.

  • Great recycling program!

Nice campground with good amenities

Very nice campground, spacious with privacy.  Power and water at the sites was nice. Locker for food convenient.  Close to trails and interesting site of old mining town. Beware of the ticks! Beautiful scenery.
