“I stayed here one night on a road trip. This campground is super quiet, which is amazing, considering its 10 minutes from I-77. Lots of wildlife, good facilities.”–ElaineMI, TripAdvisor
“My wife and I had recently purchased a Casita TravelTrailer and took a cross country trip from New Mexico to Virginia stopping in many states in between. We stayed in many RV parks and forest campgrounds. This state park was by far the best non-commercial park we stayed in. Clean, level sites and the personnel went above and beyond. Should we be in the area again, this will be our park of choice.”–jackc1212, TripAdvisor
