This park was great! All the camp sites are nice and private and your in the mountains. So peaceful here, this was camping! We hiked, we hunted for those fairy stones. We laugh, we had a campfire and I cooked up a storm! What a lovely place to spend sometime to unwind and enjoy nature. We will come back.

The park is named for these cross shaped stones. We had our extended family of 16 and stayed at the Fairy Stone Lodge right by the park office. The lodge was great for a big group with 5 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, full kitchen and BBQ out front. The lake, nature and campfire programs and park staff were wonderful. The story of the stones: Fairies have live in the world for a VERY long time. 200 years ago when Christ was crucified, fairies flew across the sea and told the fairies here. They burst into tears and when the tears hit the ground the turned to stone in the shape of crosses. Geologists call this stone Staurolite.

Lots to do! This was a daytrip for us, it is named for stones in the park, we just did not find any. There is a swimming area that looked really fun, a thunder storm spoiled that for us. We waded in the creek which was freezing and a welcome break from the 90 degree temps. There is a playground to the left of the beach area kind of tucked down the hill. Nice picnicing areas and we are looking forward to camping on our next trip

We rented a lake front cabin, #21, for the last week of June. The lake is beautiful and our family, grandkids 4 and 7, and grown son and his wife all had a nice time. We ended up renting #22 right next door as it was vacant and that gave us lots more room to spread out but you can fit 6 into a cabin with 2 rented cots. The beds were comfortable and kitchen well supplied. The cabin loop we were on was very quiet that week. We brought kayaks which everyone enjoyed using. Fishing from the bank was fun, and the hiking right in the park was good. Our favorite hike was right from the cabin up to a little waterfall. The staff were helpful and friendly, and the beach with the in water playground was the highlight for the grandsons. I loved hearing and seeing lots of birds and we all had fun building fires and cooking out. Our other son came up for a few days and helped the boys fish and hunt for fairystones- they found a lot- none perfect but thrilling to them.
