We did primitive camping in August. I was very presently surprised with the amount of things to do and the cleanliness of the park. We did several chairs, walked to the falls, played in the creek. We would definitely go again.

Traveled to McCormick's Creek State Park to eat at the Lodge. The trees were just beautiful. We took a drive through the park, but didn't stop to see anything. This is a nice park to visit and stay at the lodge. I love to stay...More

Cabins are roomy, clean, and a tank-less water heater means long showers are okay. We hiked every trail and had a campfire at a picnic area. 4 stars because we couldn't have a campfire at our cabin, but that wouldn't stop us from going back:)

Took the wife and the 2 dogs for a quite walk in the woods. The falls were a beautiful the trail along the creek bed was a little difficult to follow. All the other trails were well marked. The CCC buildings were impressive

Love this park. The falls are amazing. Go hiking as well. Some nice views. Ride the horses also. Makes you feel like you are in the middle of nowhere, but close to town.

McCormick's Creek has some nice trails. From easy to more difficult. We used to go through the cave. Didn't check if it was still open. The hotel is nice. Wish they had an indoor pool and hot tub, but they do have an outdoor pool....More
