The place is 14 miles from I-44. The North entrance crosses a slanting low water bailey bridge so drive in the longer South Entrance. I camped at the RV Park. Be prepared to self pay and register. My first site lacked power so check before you go too far. Winter rates are $24.00. All sites were full hookup. $2 discount... More

My 8 year old son acted as a tour guide on one of the hiking trails behind the conservation center. For a small fee, he will guide your tour. He is... More

The park is very busy, but we were able to get a spot in the first come-first serve lot. The park sells firewood ($1 cheaper than we paid at home), and I was pleasantly surprised by free coffee at the... More

We're in the RV in a full service camping spot soaking up the last rays of the summer. It's 75-100 yards to the trout stream. The restaurant is gearing up for the supper hour. There are several people here for this late in the season probably due to the unseasonably warm weather (high 70's). Another couple will be joining us... More
