I took my teens here and they actually put the phones away to enjoy nature. They have natural springs coming out of the mountain and waterfalls. It is truly a magical place...

Very nice e view, well marked trail. We stopped at the ranger station and all trails were open. The bathroom was clean at the visitors center. I would definitely go back. The best part, we saw almost no other hikers.

Nice RV sites. Paved, with grill, table, and fireplace. Very good price with a 25% senior discount. Good hiking trails with some easy climbing. Falls are a great treat.

We live down the road from here so we try to go here as often as we can. It's a beautiful park for the whole family. Plus it has that quiet, peaceful feel. My husband and some love to camp here as well.

This was yet another short hike down from the parking lot. The water was flowing quite heavy and my buddy and I were the only ones there. We waited for the sunset to hopefully get some quality photos, but it began to rain. Overall a...More

A moderate little state park. Known as the sandbar. I live near here and great for kayaking. Camping is good

No cost unless you are camping or renting a cabin. I think the park closes at sunset unless you’re camping of course.
