“Great state park.”

Reviewed Apr 16, 2017

Overall Rating

We have stayed in this state park many times. They have 2 sections,one for campers with dogs and one for campers who don't have dogs.Many sites have electric. The bath houses are fairly new. They have 2 lakes. The one closet to the campground has a nice beach and new bath house and snack bar. The office has a small display on the history of the park and wildlife. There is a former CCC / POW camp about a mile away. The park sells a book on it and has a map of the former camp which shows where the buildings were. Some of the sites in the campground are nice and secluded. There are some buildings left from the furnace operation,one is used as the camp store. Another is rented as a cabin. This is supposed to be the half way point on the Appalachian trail. There is a tradition that through hikers eat a half gallon of ice cream from the camp store. There is also a hostill where hikers can spend the night.
