About

State Park

Located on the Chester Hollow Trail, this shelter sits atop a very steep hill. The trail elevation rises 150 feet in under one-quarter of a mile. Consult with a ranger if you are not confident of your ability to complete such an ascent. Water may be filtered from the creek at the base of the hill on which the shelter is located, but it is highly recommended to pack in your own. There is a fire ring. The distance to the shelter is 2.95 miles. There is room for two tents and an eight person limit. Please call visitor center for additional details. Coordinates listed here are for the entrance to the park.

Truly Unfortunate Name

Would love for the park to be renamed, because it’s beauty far exceeds its namesake. The lakefront sites are really cool and the facilities are pretty decent! Bit of a steep hill to access some of the sites. And some are built on wooden decks.
