I love the outdoors amd this is the perfect place to go. Good place for taking photos of nature and family, hiking, going on a Sunday stroll, ect. We bring our dogs and they enjoy it too. Just be sure to check for ticks when you get home they seem to be very bad down there for some reason.

3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths. Clean. Not the newest facility, but not severely dated either. Living nearby, we rented this for an overnight school group team-building experience. With a total of 7 people staying there, it was more than big enough. There was plenty of kitchen and dining room area. Living room area was enhanced by the open-area connection with the... More

On a whim we traveled to Rock Island State Park. Lots of areas to stop and view the scenery. Great place for pictures and fall colors. Loved the stone bridge and the walking bridge near the playground. Great place for families with kids of all ages. Picnic areas, playgrounds, and restrooms available. Very enjoyable!!

If you are looking for relaxation, here is the spot to visit. It is a great place to take a walk and take in all the scenery and enjoy being by the water.

What a great little state park. We stayed at the campground in a 37ft fifth wheel. The spot was level, paved, roomy, and well maintained. The restrooms could have been a little cleaner but I wouldn't complain. It is a campground after all. They were heated and had lots of hot water, which was great since the days we were... More

It is a small site, but it was easy to get to the historic buildings, the visitor center, and to see the falls. We enjoyed this park, even if it was a short visit!

We really like this park. Very cozy and woodsy camp sites. We love to go swimming in the hotter months. Love to climb the rocks. There is a nice little restaurant at the store/gas station in town. There are a few trails to hike, but nothing spectacular. A walk in the woods, really. They have cabins too that look very... More

Great campground, recently renovated. Wifi available to all campsites. Good trails down to river considering steep terrain. If your a fisherman there are many opportunities as the river is the headwaters to centerhill lake. Boat ramp in the park. Staff very friendly.

Rock Island State Park is simply amazing! There are multiple waterfalls. The trails are beautiful and you can get right next to some of the falls. It is a MUST SEE to appreciate the true beauty. Be prepared to hike & climb on rocks, but it is well worth the effort!

The views are wonderful ..if you can find an area that isn't overgrown with brush. Trash isn't picked up in beach area..the tennis court was open, so we enjoyed that. The trails aren't well maintained. ..if you want to visit a great park I'd recommend Cummings Falls..or Bledsoe park.... this one just Isn't a favorite in our book... but the... More
