We visited this gorgeous park for the first time. It is an absolutely beautiful, well-maintained park. There is a paved 2-1/2 mile bike hiking trail and several other more rustic hiking trails. We took the Pete's Creek 1.2 mile trail. It is unimproved and could be challenging for less mobile individuals. It is a very enjoyable hike. The park offers... More

The area is beautiful. We rented several rooms for a family reunion. I have mixed reviews. The park is beautiful. There are things to see and do. It's great for group gatherings. The rooms are in need of refreshing, overpriced due to lack of service. My husband had to track down fresh towels. I think our room was serviced once.... More

Rooms were average and slightly outdated. No elevator if have rooms upstairs. View of the lake from the room was spectacular. Front desk staff was somewhat friendly. Lobby clean. Have buffet options. Meeting room smelled like campfire smoke.

We decided to try BRSP for a quick weekend getaway. We saw for ourselves what others had recommended to us. We stayed at the campground. One negative comment regarding the Wi-Fi available. Although it was a little out of the way from Glasgow, we found the campground park nestled in wooded area. Restaurant was excellent, the servers were awesome. Everyone... More
