This is a large state park and has some interesting buildings, an old mill, river, stream, and walking trails, plus blast furnace used in the Civil War. However, the camping areas, and stores are pretty basic and lacking. Maintenance just seems mediocre.

Great place with everything on the grounds. Camp sites were shaded with water and electric. Dump station on grounds with nice clean showers and laundry. Only complaint... no WiFi.

Not sure about the * but the cabins have AC. The cabins are very rustic and take you back in time. There is always a "fireplace" smell so get ready for that.
