Excellent place for all type of activities. Parking spot everywhere..hunting. fishing. Kayaking tubing..all you can imagine.
This is a really great place. Went with my Mom & my dog to walk the trails. We walked some of Rock Run then walked Deer Creek. Wish I knew about this place. Will definitely be one of my go to spots now. Rock Run was definitely not maintained & the path became too narrow with overgrowth for us to walk but Deer Creek was a great trail. Might try some fishing here next time. People are friendly. Bathroom at picnic area is clean. Was a great day.
If you're looking for a place to go to take the family. This is a great place to go camping the cabins have a queen size bed and two bunk beds for the kids air conditioner. The bath houses are one of the cleanest that I've ever been to except for the shower area it needs some work of improvement. But the staff was very helpful checked on us several times to make sure we were happy with our trip. It is a animal friendly place. And as I said a great place to get away from it all with the kids and no phones work in the area so it's great for a place to get away where phones don't work.
This place is so magical and full of history! A wonderful place to take your family and friends anytime of the year!
This place is gorgeous. Nice trails, friendly people. I didn't get the chance to go to the river. Pet friendly and nice picnic area. Lots of privacy. The grass could be cut a little bit more, is overgrown. We have to move the BBQ to be able to cook.
