Me and a buddy decided to camp a night at the campgrounds and do a lot of hiking the next day. First of all I'd like to say the campgrounds are pretty great. Nice and clean, although the bathrooms are fairly small. It wasn't very crowded at all. Our campsite we chose had a "slight incline" but I would have rated it more at a moderate inclide! Spent the whole night sliding around in the tent more than sleeping. But the best part is there are no mosquitoes! Plenty of spiders though. $20 a night to camp, hiking is free.
As far as the hiking goes, the trails are wonderful. If you print off information from their website beware, the maps and trail info online is wayyyyy old, however, you can obtain a map from the Visitor Center. Great mountain biking trails, and plenty of easy-going trails, but my friend and I went only for the hardest trails.. and hard they were. If I had to suggest a few trails to try out, I would definitely say go for the 7-Sink Holes trail, and lookout point trail.. stay away from Lost Trail and Ore Mine Trail unless you have a great sense of direction.. the map at points can be confusing especially when there are 2 or 3 trails coming together at one point.
Also for the families out there, there is a huge playground for the kids, and quite a few easy trails that would be nice to stroll along. Not to mention the 4 or 5 picnic areas that are very clean and spacious
Overall it was a great trip, and I would definitely come back (with mountain bikes this time!) Enjoy!
