Nice quiet walk in beautiful woods next to wetlands. Rock formations were pretty as well. Wasn’t open for camping yet so was secluded and peaceful. Some highway noise but birds everywhere and they didn’t mind (:

Pine trees are my favorite. We had the park to ourselves during the off season. It was amazing to hike in the cliffs and being surrounded by Pine trees, on a brisk day. Beautiful photo opportunities. Nice playground. It looks like a nice place for...More

This is a great spot for 45 minutes to an hour hike. Really pretty rock formations and nature views. Probably wouldn't recommend for children or strollers as the trails are rustic with some wet spots if it has rained or tree roots on/near the path....More

The trails are a bit narrow, actually quite narrow is spots but it is so beautiful and quiet. It was a nice getaway from the chaos of town.

We booked campsite #80, it was pretty looking up with the pine trees surrounding us, but the ground was rocky so our tent stakes got bent up trying to insert them in. Another negative is the highway is right next door to the campground. It...More

The park is one of the smaller ones but it is absolutely stunning. It is always weird to feel the temperature difference with all of the rock.

We were passing through & looking for a quiet overnight stop. Loved the scenery & how quiet it is. Roomy camping sites. Was worried we were parking on dirt, but site seemed pretty firm. My son was bothered by the highway noise, but I did...More

There is a playground when you come into the park. I do not remember seeing one next to any of the camping sites. It's not a far walk, but it is far enough that little kids should not go by themselves.
