We were surprised to see so many campers. Sites melded into one another. Even with all the people there the rangers and volunteers took time to talk with you. We left on Monday ~ and it was great to see the park post holiday.

Stayed at the state park for 2 nights in a tent. Showers are adequate and the volunteers and staff keep the place going. Very dense and some good trails.

We were in a friends motor home that's well over 25 feet. Its around 35 feet. It was a fun place to stay for a few days. I'd call them just I case to be sure they have a lot available that youll fit it.
