park review stars; one to five We liked it. The Flood of 2007 has changed things, I had a great time just floating down the river near the gentle rapids. The Rangers are great about bringing the firewood around. If you accidentally speak to one of the Rangers Before arrival you will find out there actually are not reservations at this Particular Park and this appeals to myself.
February 13 AMAZING! by positivepolly
park review stars; one to five I absoutly loved the park. With the natural wildlife and amazingness of the surroundings. I went earlier in the year and just found this site. I see the post titled sad and it is not at all what my experience was. I will be going the every summer from now on!
May 30 VERY BEAUTIFUL by still camping
park review stars; one to five When you see the old growth trees surrounded by fresh cut grass and native plants, picnic tables and rail fence, you will want to camp there. Built in 1935 with 139 acres, campsites hidden in the trees and a large grass area with a log kitchen, play equipment and new restrooms. The park is very clean and the park crew and Ranger Phil are very friendly with all the dry firewood ready for you to roast some hotdogs. We loved our visit and it was well worth the drive. Check it out soon, summer is coming.
