Great State Park

Stayed in the River Backcountry Camping Area. No more than a mile from the parking lot it was a nice secluded area. The trail there is almost perfectly flat you could definitely bicycle in and out. It’s nice to be right on the river and out of the hustle and bustle of a main camping area. Saw mountain lion prints every morning in the mud on the trail, which made me slightly anxious when hiking. Did have some issues with raccoons pawing through our stuff at night, but we had all of our food hanging in a storage bag from a tree. The trails are nice in the park lots of good views. They aren’t very well marked and the maps aren’t good but it wasn’t ever all the strenuous. Gorman Falls in October when we went was definitely not worth the hike, just a trickle of water down the cliff face. Definitely would go back to the park and bring the mountain bikes.
