Great place love it Only thing is they rarely have caretakers there and people that camp usually muck the place up either with loud annoying music or kids way past the time everything is suppose to stop for the night
It was awesome cold water springs, lake ,very nice camp grounds hot water in showers,friendly campers
What a fun park! Nice hiking that offers beautiful water views as well as the old saw mill. The campground was a bit older, but still nice. We made note of the giant pinecones which were unique. Wooded area with a good amount of privacy.
