Very quiet and seems like it is deep in the wilderness, but is pretty close to civilization. The campground is well maintained and the facilities are clean.

This is a nice clean park. Very quiet and pretty. The bathrooms need to be upgraded, they are old. The road there is curvy. Enjoyed the fall camping.

Love hiking, camping and swimming. Never too crowded. State Park employees are always very helpful. We just got a boat and love to launch there.

We camped here for a weekend in our tent. The camp ground is very nice and lake is beautiful. We stayed at campsite 4. Was close to the restroom..but lacking any shade. The showers were disgusting. Dirt amd hair were just matted to the floor.

Big Ridge suited our family's needs just fine. We stayed at campsite 21. I liked it better than others because we didn't have any immediate neighbors to our left, had water access, and water and electric hookups. There is a designated swimming area that we...More
