Open or shaded sites are along a stream. Each site has a picnic table and fire ring. The campground has a sanitary dump station, showers, flush toilets and many water outlets. Garbage and recycling receptacles, trailer storage and a second vehicle parking lot are at the campground entrance. Alcoholic beverages, pets and unlicensed motor vehicles are prohibited.

Four picnic areas in both shaded and open locations contain four picnic pavilions, many picnic tables, a volleyball court and play equipment. Picnic pavilions may be reserved up to 11 months in advance for a fee. Unreserved picnic pavilions are free on a first-come, first-served basis.

The Lower Picnic Area is about one-half mile south of the campground. It is completely separated from the rest of the park. This six-acre area has picnic tables, grills, charcoal disposals, non-flush toilets, parking area, picnic pavilion, foot bridge and a well with a hand pump. River birch, white pine, sugar maple and black locust are common trees in the area.
Nature Programs
Environmental education and interpretive programs are offered on a seasonal basis. Field learning experiences are available to schools during the spring and fall, and teachers? workshops are offered periodically. Programs are designed to meet the standards for Environment and Ecology, but also address other areas. Programs are also available on request to civic organizations, youth groups, and home-schooling associations. Topics include astronomy, botany, entomology, folklore, and zoology, among others.

Guided walks, evening programs, hands-on learning activities and craft programs are offered to park visitors from Memorial Day weekend to Labor Day. An indoor classroom, part of the park office, is used during cold or rainy weather.

park review stars; one to five
November 9 cliche in the reservation computer syst by A happy gammy and grandkids
park review stars; one to five In March of 2015 I made reservation to rent one of the cottages at Little Pine which never should have went through cause the park was not open yet. Oh how thankful I am for that going through my 2 oldest grandkids and I got to spend March 30 and 31 there. When we got up March 31 it was snowing and I what thought was going to be a snow flurry ended up being 7 inches of snow. What beauty we got to see and share. Thank you for that experience. We was the only people there and there was very little staff on duty,but they check on us through out the day. It is a spring break that will stay with us forever. Thank you for the cliche,thank you for the snow,and thank you for the kind staff. We had a great time;
