It's Nice But...
It's a nice state park but I have a couple of gripes. 1. Why do we have to pay $6 to "enter" the park when we are paying to camp? 2. The road in was sketcky. Flooding on both sides of the road. We had no way to know if the road was washed out underneath. After crossing, I asked the nice lady at the check in booth and she said it was fine. We stayed the night and it poured rain all night. We got up and left, half expecting the road to be gone, but it was still there. We rolled the dice and drove out hoping there was still something under the blacktop. Wish I would have taken a picture.

Typical State Park
Large spacious sites, no sewer, no water, only electric, dump station, and potable water fill station. $6 for vehicle to gain access, $21.50 for camping, $5 for a bundle of delivered firewood. Nice playground, swimming area. Lots of open space.
