Loved by campers and hikers, the park has both upland and bottomland camp sites and several fishing lakes. Entrance fee is $1 per person. If you are willing to spend the night, you can camp in a tent, RV or rent a cabin with some great views. Kids will love the splashpad and the water playground for children. If you are into teambuilding, this park offers group camping options and even a conference room! And if you own a horse, there are horse-trails, too.

The park's doors are open 7AM to 9PM. If you would like to know more visit the park's official website.
