We made a quick visit to the park to hike about and look for wildlife yesterday. We saw a turtle and many deer. The park covers over 7000 acres and has many hiking and bike trails. Lots to do and enjoy.

Yes. There are 2 campgrounds, they both will accommodate campers, the older campground has more shade but will take a small camper, the new campground will take large campers but has less shade. Reservations recommended.
