    Park experience

    Made last minute reservations while traveling across country. Beautiful park with many species of trees. Paved flat sites. Was just an overnight stay but I would return to this park again.

    not happy

    Was hassled by campground host about having wheels on the grass. I have visited 6 other state parks this summer and never got complaints about having wheels on grass. Why is it so important to not park on grass at this state park?

    Would stay again

    We just stayed overnight, but would definitely stay here again. Very pretty campground, well maintained, and easy to move around in (we have a 43' 5th wheel).
