Place was a charm , the employees need to be replaced, it's difficult to enjoy the atmosphere when you have people that don't enjoy their Job.

Magical. Great camping site, gentle sloping shallow area for little kids, a boardwalk through the woods, canoeing, and a spacious, updated bath house. This is the place to be in the summer with a bunch of active children!

I had difficulty with a "Barney Fife" type park attendant. (This is a national forest park serviced by private parties) This park used to cost 25 cents to enter and had real US forest service rangers whom I respect. Now the park costs 5.50 per person. Got alot of kids? Family of 6 will set you back $33.00 and all the lip you can handle.When my 12 year old son and his friend were lost in the forest they managed to find their way to the Springs entrance after a 6 mile hike. They were given a mason jar with water and sent on their way. (4 miles to camp) Thanks Mr. Fife.
I've been going to Aleander Springs for over 50 years and feel that we have already paid for this park once. The state parks charge a reasonble fee by the carload. Maybe they should take over the national forest parks as well.
