Great park with a lot of hiking/biking trails. Trails are poorly marked though, so best to not really have a plan! Most of the trails are clear and easy to hike. Bring bug repellant! Horse flies, yellow jackets, etc are horrible when hiking, but no problem in the campsites. Campsites are basic and could use better cleaning. Bathrooms are typical campground bathrooms. Well stocked, though. A lot of history to see. Gorgeous Champion Trees.

If you enjoy nature and state parks, this is a great place to stay. Many miles of trails, a boardwalk across swampy and bay water, civil war trivia and the remnants of a long long town. The employees are all extremely friend and helpful and even went an extra mile to help us with a problem we had. The site we stayed at wasn't very level and the roads caused a little trouble for our tow dolly due to the hills but it wasn't anything that would stop us from staying again. There are several grocery stores about 5 miles away, as well as a Bass Pro shop with an amazing restaurant. The front office sells local honey.

Beautiful ☮️ full park... Bathrooms could use little more detail though. Great place to visit. Historical Tour. ( Self guided) Would take a while to get though it. Will be back, was 20 dollars a night to tent. Very private most of them. Fire pit, and picnic tables at all sites. Ranger at gate was great, friendly, and lots of advice. Didn't rush us in and out and sit and talked for a good while. Loved the park.

This place is run by the most dishonest people I have ever heard of. My husband and his friend took our kids camping last weekend with our dog. They paid extra for a cabin to keep a dog in. Today we received a charge for a missing blanket, a dish towel, and they claimed our dog urinated and defecated all over the cabin. Our trained black lab has never had an accident inside before and this was no exception. Nothing was taken, the dog never used the restroom inside. These people are complete liars and are just looking for a way to make an extra buck off of you. We planned on bringing our other children back for many weekends to come. Never again. Disappointed is an understatement.

While the park is very interesting to visit and quite scenic, the camping facilities are sub-par compared to most of the parks we've been to around the state. The sites are very large and all pull through, however, they are basically gravel and dirt. It rained a good bit while we were there, and or site became a muddy mess. Also, there are not shower facilities within walking distance to the sites (we actually had to load up and drive a mile or two to the bath house). Be advised, the gates are locked at 2100, and to get in or out, you have to call and wake up the staff to open them. Finally, the horseflies are numerous and massive, so be aware you will be swarmed from morning to night by biting insects. All in all, it's a nice park to visit, but we might not be camping here again.
