“Free and quiet.”

Overall Rating

Free campsites for RVs and tents, though very hilly. Picnic tables at most sites, fire pits at few. Bathrooms were minimal, no sinks or showers, but toilet paper provided. There is a hand pump for water, but it says not for drinking or cooking, so bring plenty of your own.

Overall, a nice quiet place to enjoy the outdoors. Long trails for riding and hiking, watch out for spider webs in the middle of them.

We had the place you ourselves. Though, many cars drove through periodically during the day, particularly in the morning. Worth the stay.

FYI: construction occuring on the road. It will be close 9/5/18-9/26/18. That being said, there is another free camping area on the opposite end of the state park if needed.

“Super and No Cost!”

Truly a hidden gem that contains 20 sites (all dry camping), all but 1 are paved, sites vary in length, slope (we were able to level our 22' travel trailer with a few blocks on one side) and shade, each site has a picnic table and some have rock fire rings.

Beautifully clean well kept grassy, wooded area.

Many sites have tether lines for horses.

There are several horse/walking trails.

A small pond, not sure if it's stocked or not.

Trash cans throughout the park, areas to dump gray water and there is a water hand pump but the water is not drinkable, no dump station.

Pit toilets are better than nothing but get minimal care.

Group fire ring and seating area.

We came in on a Monday and there was only one other camper that left the next day. Our 2nd night we were the only ones there, sweet! A few people drove through but none camped. There are registration forms at the bathroom to fill out, 1 to display in your windshield and 1 to leave in a registration drop box. A Sheriff's vehicle drove through on the 2nd day, presumably routine patrolling. Very peaceful and quiet except for the great variety of birds and I saw a deer in the wooded area beside us.

Oh yes, the raccoons are experts at getting into the trash at night. Nobody came to clean up the mess but even so the park is better than many we've paid for. Truly loved it.

Note: the road to the park is narrow, but paved and in 2 places the road has washed out and narrows down to 1 lane. We had no problem getting through.
