One of the nicer state parks for camping and family fun. Plenty to do and keep a family occupied. Water is definitely cold so you may want to go when it is a little warmer if you want to get in the river. I would recommend late March at the earliest.

Hit the near by Blackwater River Outpost for canoeing and/or tubing fun.

This park is in the pine woods habitat and is frequently visited by birders seeking those special birds which live only in these forests. There are excellent opportunities to see the endangered Red-cockaded Woodpecker and other species.

We loved our visit to this park. Kayaked the Sweetwater & enjoyed the campfire, even though it rained. The water is beautiful, there are lots of nice trails & the camp sites are very nicely maintained.
