Beautiful Park and campground. Friendly Staff, lovely views and hikes surrounding the park. Can hike to the suspension bridge and beyond on the east coast trail. Lovely little hike to the waterfall and swimming hole from the campground as well.

We stumbled upon the road in to the trail while touring the Irish Loop. Since we love getting off the beaten path we decided to go check out the suspension bridge. It was well worth the short hike in. A good trail with a big...More
