Our tour guide was amazing! One of the best ever! Went to the visitor center and paid for a 4 hour tour of the Hensley Settlement Farm, $10 and they take u there in a van!! Well worth the money for sure!

Just wanted to say that everyone had a great time. We had a family reunion at the park picnic area. The area was clean and bathrooms were clean. We all hope to return next year.

This is a very nice park. It is well maintained. Loops B and C have electrical hookup for your RV. You will need to fill your freshwater holding tank just pass the entrance station. The campsites are well spaced and provide good privacy and shade.

The marker is at the top of a hill at the end of a trail-there’s a gazebo and a small plaque for each state along with a marker on the ground.
