We’ll Be Back
Loved it. Great, well maintained and marked hiking trails for all levels of hiker, from moderate to challenging. Nice lake and beach. Campsites would be challenging for big rigs. Our 34ft travel trailer worked out, but they do have a maximum, and their site map tells you what each space can handle lengthwise. Helpful staff.

Camper’s and Hiker’s Mountain Retreat
Nestled at the base of the Blue Ridge Escarpment, this long time state park offers wooded campsites, a store, amphitheater, lake, fishing, paddle boating, swimming, and access to several major trail systems across a beautiful series of cascades. Hilly and a little tight for large units in spots, sites offer power and water but no sewer, though there is a dump station. Very scenic, great for those who want to explore the mountains. Shopping and services are limited in the immediate area, so bring most of your stuff along.

If you’re looking for a place with no crowds, this is it. Water an electric only, fairly level, all sites shaded, table w/ fire ring. Bath house clean and centrally located. Big rigs take care, tight and crooked road thru grounds. Not much to do here, however Haygood mill not far from location has music ever third sat of the month. There is a lake/beach inside park, fishing allowed. Only 9 campers left after 11:00am Sunday . Very quiet and secluded. Has lots of trails but was too hot to hike while we were here.

Awesome Views In Park!!!
This is an awesome park, if you want to go camping and take your dog hiking. It has beautiful views at the vistas and waterfalls. Since it is older camp, there are only water and electrical connections - which are quite a distance apart. Park camper carefully or you may need extra hose! Max 30 Amps for campers.

The area is beautiful and has lot to do if you enjoy outdoor activities. The little lake has a nice beach for swimming, and rents kayaks and paddle boats. The park is clean and well manicured and not very busy. The sites are a little uneven so don’t forget your levelers! The pull through sites are at pretty sharp angles so I recommend a back-in site if you have a camper 22’ or bigger (that’s how long ours is). Also, some of the sites are near a road, so if you don’t like traffic noise I would avoid sites near #28. We’ll be using site #44 next time! It was perfect.

Nice Little Park
There were only a handful of campers in the park when we stayed which made it nice and peaceful. The showers were hot with good water pressure. I loved this park.
