It was a pretty park, staff was pleasant. Trails are good for all levels of hiking. We came in the Spring which we immediately learned limited many of the activities at the Park. Water related activities don't get going until after mid May. Yet our kids had fun and met some really nice children by the beach. Good family get... More

We ordered the fresh mountain trout, jumbo shrimp and a chicken Cesar salad. The fish was watery and tasteless almost like frozen meat. And the shrimp was gooey like it was under cooked. And the salad was wilted and the onions,cucumber, tomatoes, were soft and soggy. Gross!! This used to be a great restaurant, what happened? And the rooms at... More

My family and I love to tent camp and tent camping is fantastic here! We geocached, hiked and trout fished. It was a great weekend in this gorgeous State Park!

We arrived hungry and were going to settle for concession food or small store, but when we went to the motel they had a great country buffet. big shrimp for the salad and homemade side and delicious fried chicken! Probably one of the cheapest and best meals on the whole trip!

We had a great time on this family outing. There's a paved walk way to the falls with lots of benches to stop and rest at along the way. The property is very well maintained.

The lodge seems to be the main draw at this park but we did not stay there. My rating is based on the trails. They were well maintained but there are better options in the area in my opinion. Anna ruby falls can be reached via the Smith Creek trail or a much shorter hike starting outside the park. After... More
