We stopped here for two nights and rode Moonshiners 28! It was a great ride. The park doesn't answer their phone. We were arriving late and couldn't reach anyone all day. The site online was described as level and a pull through. It was neither....More

We visited this park to hike to Hidden Falls. Wasn't a crazy long hike but I would rank it as a moderate difficulty trail. The waterfall itself wasn't that impressive, but it's always nice to check out a new fall.

Not much to do in the fall. Hike a few minutes and left. Unless you are a camper, this is a pass. Very small park. We kept looking for the rest of it.

We stayed for a week in cabin 14. I was pleasantly surprised at how nice it was. More family members had cabin 16, and it was nice, but darker wood and no microwave cart in theirs. Things I brought that were helpful: oven mitts, tailgate...More

My husband and I rented a rustic CCC cabin by the lake. I loved the history of the cabin while still being clean and comfortable. The park was well maintained and offered numerous activities. We will be back to explore this beautiful area further

The place was nice but they did a poor job of advertising on their site. We camped at a rustic tent site and the only reason I chose this over a standard site was due to the fact that it was lakefront. When we got...More

Hi! Didn't stay in the campground this trip through, only was there for a beautiful day. You can call the park directly at 864-638-5353. I'm sure they could answer your question. Have a great time!
