This park is about half way on a trip form NC to NY I take and it is a great way to split a long day into two nice days.
Fifteen Mile Creek is part of the larger C&O Canal park. If I remember correctly it winds its way for about 150 miles. For this portion, at least, the campground is good and the tow path along the canal is great for a run and quite scenic. There are spots along the canal for through hikers and bikers to camp and various drive up spots.
About the campground:
- 6 or 8 campsites reservations are a good idea
- picnic tables and grills / fire rings
- two pit toilets
- no showers
It is right next to a boat launch and parking lot.
