    One of my favorite places to camp. Nice creek flowing through which is great for tubing. Children and adults love it. Very nice hiking trails close by. Some historical cabins nearby. Clean and well kept.

    Great camp sites surrounded by a beautiful river. Great location for those interested in being in easy driving distance to most of the park's attractions. The camp store was reasonably priced with great service.
