Wanted to go swimming, found this delightful gorgeous state park. Pool is spring fed, cabins available, horseback riding and picnic areas. Tucked away in the middle of no where, beautiful scenic drive.

No, not at all. It's a free state park. There are rental fees for the cabins and fees to swim if you are not staying in a cabin. There are also fees for the horse back riding.
