    This place is beautiful and the fishing is superb! There a ton places to choose to fish, three different zones with specific baits allowed in each. The staff at the facilities are all awesome as well. All around a great experience!

    This was an awesome park. Somehow, the poison ivy was growing wild, and virtually every tree had some growth.. It's not cool if your dog gets it on coat and rubs it off on you.. Toilets.... somehow, it seems the campground attracts the messiest people.. They can not aim straight with no1 or no2.. We took home a few ticks... we will bring them back next year... Otherwise camping was cool..

    Great experience, I don't fish, but I went camping with some friends, everything is very tidy, clean, there are bathrooms and showers. There is space for walking and lots of nature. If you like my photos follow me in Instagram @juli.dayphoto

    This is an awesome place! There is fishing, hiking, and beautiful views!! It was a bit crowded because of the holiday but enjoyed it anyway! They got a cool nature center, cabins for rent, and rv spots in nearby areas. It's a great day trip for those who like short hikes, and the fishing is awesome too! Deserves more than 5 stars in my book!

    Outstanding trout fishery and camping with all the amenities you'd need. It is very busy and can sometimes get crowded around the springs. However, I keep coming back, and each time is a trip worth remembering.

    Went for a little adventure with my fiance, son, and Australian shepherd. We had a lot of fun walking around. We fed the fish. The weather was nice. We regularly visit because we live 11 miles away. Definitely a clean park and worth visiting. Educational and beautiful.

    We had a great RV spot on the level by the spring water. Very nicely laid out. The spring and water were gorgeous. We don't fish, but there were a good number of people trying their luck. The store is well stocked and there is a restaurant.

    A family destination for 60 years now. 4 generations of fly fishers (and 4 more little tykes coming of age.) A place to make wonderful memories with your family and friends. Beautiful park no matter the time of year or weather. Exciting rainbow trout to persue.pursue. Friendly fisherman love to chat. State park employees and business owners who care about your needs and will undoubtedly become fast friends. Start something new or renew something old. Either way, you will all be happy you did. Hi, I'm Shuanna, a 63 yr old fly fisher's inviting you and yours to the time of your lives.

    Went with a group of 15 guys and did some tent camping. Even though it was hot the river was nice and cool. Plenty of spots to fish and never felt overcrowded. The store had everything that we needed and our guys went nuts for the soft serve ice cream. Planning on coming back next year. The campsites were very nice with electric and had tons of room for all of our campers. The restrooms were plentiful and not far at all from our campsite. They were showers and they were fairly clean considering the camp atmosphere. All in all I say it was such a great experience, our guys had a good time, and we will most likely return this next year.
