“Camping”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2012

Its a beautiful park. The campground is small, but you get that camping in the woods feel. We had fun hiking on the trails, there are a lot of things to see, water features, rock formations, etc. The only drawback is the campground doesn't have showers.

“Lots of great trails!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2012

In Raystown lake for a yoga trip - group went on 2 different hkes in the park - of course the one to the famous 'Balancing Rock'. It a nice short trail only .12 miles - but it is up hill. Some natural stairs to climb and some narrow paths - but overall for me, a novice hiker it was easy.
