The park is beautiful. One of the best I have been to. However, the family cabins have mice. They were making so much noise inside our cabin that we left at 4:00 in the morning.

All in all it’s a great park with lots of activities for all ages and lifestyles. The Canyon Inn looks like it would be a nice place to stay too. Camp sites in the whole are packed tightly together with little to no space between...More

My husband and I really enjoyed our time at McCormick's Creek State Park. The waterfall area is beautiful. I appreciated how easy it was to get to the waterfall compared to other state parks. We cannot wait to visit again!
