Beautiful scenery

Loved this park! There are several tours that would be gegeat to go but we didn't have enough time to get to them. We stayed in the rustic tent sites which I wouldn't recommend. 1. You have a bit of a hike in. #2 Raccoon bothered us while we were eating and he wasn't a bit timid. 3. Ants got in my car with all the doors shut and windows up and made an ant pile on the racks on top of my car overnight. Way more rustic then what I was hoping for. We were much closer to the beach though than the other sites so could here the ocean from our site.

Creekside camping

We could hear the stream from our site at night. Exactly what we were looking for but beware of the walk up sites because they do not update which ones are available online so your spot may be taken when you get there. Strictly first come and you can get there much earlier than I thought. Trails all around the site and longer ones further down the road. Hiked on the Appalachian and went to take the blue trail that takes you to the summit of Standing Indian Mountain but that trail was really overgrown so since I had my 3 littles, we decided to head back after already hiking 1hr 45mins. 😣 Some of the tent sites and nicely secluded. Overall, was a nice place.

Family friendly

Great place for families. Not very secluded. It is pretty much one big open green space with tent sites circling in a loop around the green space. You cannot park your car right at the site. There is a parking lot so you have to hike in just a little bit. The park there is really nice though and nice trail that takes you to the dock and marsh. There is a shower and they even have laundry facilities. Great play area for kids during the day also with a spray play. Volleyball nets throughout the area and you can rent bikes, kayaks, sup, and pedal boats. Also have a climbing wall. This was a great place to get our feet wet when we first started camping.
