Beautiful State Park, with very clean sites and bathroom. VERY remote location making it extremely difficult to find secondary to poor signage & no GPS signal. Zero amenities close by, campground is 3.5 miles off the nearest road. Another 15-20 minutes away from any town with a grocery store, dining or conveniences. Campground does have a tiny store with very limited selection and very rude staff. One of the 3 bathrooms is heated but the plumbing is broken with only straight hot water or straight cold, making the showers useless. The water at my site was rusty so was of limited value. Some gradients very steep with limited level sites. Extremely limited phone, satellite and GPS signal. Park was undergoing new management during my stay so perhaps things may improve. The Historical Plantation that they boast is miles from the campground, with all buildings inaccessible and only 2 horses.

| Trails Not Maintained & No Trail Maps

I went here primarily to be in the mountains to hike. And on nearly 7,000 wooded acres there is ample opportunity to do so here and should be a main selling feature of this park. However there were NO trail maps even though apparently there is an abundance of varied difficulty and length of trails. Zero signage to point out the starting location of such trails. The one trail I did manage to find was not maintained at all and was like a deer path, having you guess where to go and split off into other trails several times. Very occasionally I would see nothing more then a small colored sign posted randomly far apart on a tree indicating I was still on a trail of some kind. But no label on ANY signage to indicate distance, difficulty or name of the trail. Had to climb over some logs to continue on the path, and cross several streams, getting my footwear wet as there were NO foot bridges. Very dissapointing.

It's a Great, Clean, Park, with Nice Knowledgeable Staff. Roadways are clean, no potholes and the river and creeks are clean also, no debris. The grounds are well groomed and manicured, where needed to be. We've been coming here for decades and will continue to do so in the future.

Had a very nice stay in #48. Bathhouse was clean and close. Nice distance between campsites on this section. Camp host worked hard to make stay pleasant.

The park is only a few minutes off the interstate. Follow the signs carefully and yes, the long, curvy, unmarked road to the campground does end at the trading post where you can check in to your site. Sites are all sizes and shapes, with some more level than others. Electricity and water may be a bit far from the pad. We were there for one night and had an entire area of the park to ourselves. Quiet, beautiful and very enjoyable.
