This is a beautiful state park. Running water, ponds, picnic tables and lots of trails to walk! Cool on a hot summer day by the brooks. Great place for a picnic day. As you would expect, ticks are abundant! Take care.

It was a nice trip during the fall season. Beautiful fall colors near the water fall as well as the wooden bridge. Kids had a great time too.

The park is mostly a camping ground/picnic area. However there are signs posted and areas roped off that the camping area is not open this year due to budget constraints. This includes the portapotties that were boarded up near the falls. Perhaps the potties are...More
