Pick on of the backwoods campsites. Ours at Covey's gap has our own privy, waterfront and fire pits. There are 10' x 10' platforms to pitch your tent and picnic tables. Pick up your firewood at the main office.

This Park offers something for everyone - camping, swimming, hiking, nature displays. Plan on spending the day to make it worth the admission price.

This is a fantastic and large park. We've stayed here before and, in both instances, we've enjoyed our visit. I would say that this is truly a hidden gem at just a 2 hr drive from home.
