My sister and I visited this lovely State Park yesterday (I wanted to pick up some walking stick medallions while visiting her). We found it to be a beautiful place! Awesome overlooks, nice hiking trails, a cute little lake and a nice little park store!...More

Wow! How can the scenery in the same park change so frequently? The view, the terrain, the grade, the bears! Well marked with frequent blazes. We were exhausted and thrilled. Best trail I've ever hiked!

We visited this on Memorial Day weekend. It was a day trip. We did three hikes. The lake is nice and the hike to CCC tower is a good one. It was a pleasant outdoor trip.

Check in was easy and fast. The staff was helpful and friendly. The camp site was very wooded and large. You were almost too isolated. They helped the bath house and grounds very clean. I would give the camping area a 4 star. The lake...More

This state park is so peaceful. It is so laid back. The lake is nice to go fishing in or taking a boat ride. This is a park that you can spend the day at or you can camp overnight. The campgrounds are really nice....More

This is a smaller yet spacious state park that offers amazing views of the mountains and surrounding towns in the valleys. The drive up to the park is scenic. There is a lake and beach with cottages and campsites, and plenty of hiking trails as...More
