We took our grandchildren camping for a weekend. They had a great time riding bikes, playing at the playground and fishing. We also hiked some trails. The bathrooms in campground need updated. The public day use areas are nice.

The full service cabins were economical and well maintained. Great option for a family vacation that allows you to drive to various locations.

The park is pretty and well maintained but in August it can be too hot. The rangers were very nice and helpful.
