I visited this park for an afternoon hike during a sunny November day. Several other people had the same idea. Facilities were limited due to the late date, but the park was open for hikers and day users. The hiking trails follow and cross/recross Beaver...More

This state park occupies the upper reaches of Beaver Creek, including its primary source Big Spring. The water flows in good volume at about 50 degrees F. A little cold for swimming but some do. Just right for trout. Many campers are also trout fishermen....More

Amazing visit to the state park. Very nice place to stay and the park is very well maintained. The trails are amazing and all the common areas are well kept. Beautiful park to take your family for a weekend or more.

Spent the afternoon hiking the Switch Back Trail up to the top of the bluff. It was fairly steep with 2 overlooks. Only one had an awesome view of the surrounding bluffs. Narrow, steep and wet, you need to watch footing. River crossings without a...More

We had a wonderful time hiking along the river. We did the 3.6-mile hike in the lower river valley. It was a perfect day and low season meant for a very quiet and isolated hike. Wildflowers were just starting to bloom and the recent rains...More
