No 2 on USA Today List for Good Reason

We stayed in lot 211 in early October. The park is outstanding. Clean. Level sites. Paved hiking trails to the Shut In’s. The store and visitor center were already closed during the week but open on the weekend. The leaves were just starting to turn.

Quiet and very well maintained

More private than I expected from a big state park campground with showers and the works. I’d absolutely recommend.

Better than expected

Arrived in evening as a stopping point. It was a bit loud but right at quiet time everyone was silent until after quiet ours ended. The campground trail was nice and the amenities were surprisingly well maintained. Hot shower in private shower room, flush toilet, well lit and not over crowded.
