We hiked some, didn't make it all the way to the saw mill, but hiking next to a spring was fun, as there were bridges to cross and different terrain.

Been here twice. First time we enjoyed splashing in the lake spillway and walking around the lake. Second time, we hiked Sawmill Trail. Walking a 5-mile hike is a long walk for me, but it wasn't too bad! Took about 2 hours to get there,...More

This was a very fun hike. It was relatively easy for the entire family, and made for a great Saturday activity. The old saw mill was absolutely beautiful. I just wish there were signs telling the history of the building . Several of the bridges...More

We love visiting this specific camp site due to the hiking trail. It is a gorgeous area with an even more gorgeous water fall. There is a long trail that goes to the old saw mill and that is an experience all in its own!...More
