Describe your camping trip:
Cons: Well, my husband did get poison ivy, but that's what you get when you trek in the woods.

i went last summer (July '09), we only went down for one night, but hiked on both days. I had going hiking there once about 3 weeks before but did not stay over...the park is very large, the camp grounds are in the back. There are group cabins available as well and small cabins for families. There are RV areas and all the way in the back there are spots for good old fashioned tents (which is what i have) Pets are allowed (my dog goes with me everywhere). You can pre-book/pay online, when you arrive they ask you to sign in at the office and get a car tag, your site has a reservation tag on it. The park has plenty of trails for hiking, and they are all very wooded-no paved trails here (except the ones you drive on to enter the park)...i forget exactly how many, but there were at least 6 main trail ranging in milage and difficulty. The trails are marked well but since the woods are so thick, it is still easy to get lost. They have maps available online and at the office (get the one at the office-it's much easier to read) there's a lake and a pool, bathrooms with showers (they were clean) but too far away from our site to use...there are deff enough trails to camp there for 2-4 days and never use the same trail twice. There is another park across the street that we ended up exploring on the way out...it was a very nice, mostly flat, long path through woods, farm land, church grounds, streams, and a historic area. All in all it was a good time. I deff want to go back this coming spring/summer...good place to get away from it all...not crowded, maybe see 1-2 people hiking for a few hours (good for mountian biking-mostly bikers were seen not hikers) there is alone a VERY long trail that goes along the outskirts of the park for horses...
