 General Comments
It's not much of a typical state park, but a very nice campground that is great for camping with small kids (although there weren't a lot of them around when we were there). The entire place is grassy with a nice playground. The back of the park borders the river where there is a nice boardwalk along the edge No campsites are directly on the water.
