We enjoyed staying at this state park. There are beautiful views and the bathrooms were clean. Some strange rules, though. Such as you are no allowed to pick up any wood. And are not allowed to let any water to run out onto the ground.

Over-the-Air TV was marginal, and would most likely be best in the upper part of the Elk Ridge camping area. We watched Redbox DVD movies instead.
