This park was absolutely beautiful. The camp sites are well maintained. The bath house was spotless and included shower areas. Each camp site included an electrical hookup and water. Would definitely stay here again.

We took our 10-year-old grandson to the Beach area to swim. He had a wonderful time. We ended the day searching for Fairy Stones in the woods

The campground is in a heavily wooded area and even though the temperature was in the 80's is felt much cooler. The hiking trails are wide and well marked. I was able to search for Fairy Stones and was successful in finding quite a few....More

the park is very nice. Pulled 5th wheel into a rather tight spot. The park is older so spaces are smaller. There is a length restriction so check before going. Several small towns around that nice to walk around. Floyd had a Friday night show...More

Fairy Stone is a great park. Cabins are unique, old school and spread out in 4 different areas. Try to get a lakeside one if you can. Be aware that the cabins do not have fire rings. You are allowed to have an outside fire...More

Tent pads are 12x14. What if my tent is larger than 12x14? Can we still camp?

You'd have nowhere to pitch your tent. The rest of the campsite is blacktop and wouldn't accommodate a tent that large
My 70+ year old mother and I have just booked cabin 3 for a week in late May. As we are flying from Oregon, we will need to stop and stock up on groceries, etc. Do we also need toilet paper and bath towels? It says linens provided, but I am thinking that is bed linens. Any help to make this smooth is much appreciated.

We have towels and toilet paper in addition to the bed linens in the cabins. All basic pots and pans, dishes, silverware and glassware too. Cabin 3 is one of our historic CCC cabins. The only challenge is stone steps and no... More
