Loved this park! Gravel site with elect, but very spacious and level. Two loops, one with 50 amp service and large sites. Plenty of privacy, with trees and brush between sites, fire rings and tables for handicap. Facilities were used, but very clean. Strangest showers I've seen. Hold the handle up for water. The longer you hold it the hotter it gets. Let go of it and the water stops. But it worked. Will be back.
Knowing nothing about this park we stumbled in on a Friday just after noon and as we left early the next day the park was full. Very popular, but nice park. Plenty of sites in the full sun and plenty in the woods/shade. Park attendee assigned us a site, but it worked out fine. Facilities were very well maintained and clean. The Lodge has excellent food at very affordable prices. Camping fee for a B was $25 and a non-resident park pass was $7. Camp store was typical and nice. Never got to try the trails on this trip, but heard nothing but good things about them.We could see a couple of days here.
Advantage: Right off I-75 for a great one night stay. Easy in and easy out. Disadvantage: Right off I-75. Constant road noise. Well maintained park, no Wi-Fi, but large spacious sites, though not much privacy. Nice restrooms and shower facilities. Highlight of the park is the restaurant Rickard Ridge BBQ. I had a sampler platter for $17 and the wife a huge baked potato and salad. We shared that meal and had lunch and dinner the next day of it. GREAT!
Very nice park and a pleasant stay. The sites are pretty nice, roomy, and well spaced amid huge hemlock and pine trees. Very pretty. Restrooms/showers are terrific and very well maintained. Only stayed one night and never saw park attendant or ranger. Paid via honor system which was a bit confusing. Never had a camp fire, but saw wood for sale, but saw no way to pay for it. The falls and bridges were very pretty and interesting to see. We stayed in our van and the upper road in would be a real challenge to a big rig, in my opinion. Would definitely go back.
A nice stop for a night over. But put me in mind of private concessionaires taking over and not really providing the needed upkeep. Some tables were the worse for the wear as was the restroom facilities. They were clean, but well used and showed it. Many pull through sites and very open. It put me in mind of a fish camp, where the guys go to fish all day, care about their catch, their boats and a good meal at days end and that's all. At $27 minus a senior discount of 20%, but add the $5 park pass totaled $26.60. Not bad, but Bluff Creek Access, a corp park, a few mile north in Alabama is gorgeous and a whole lot cheaper with the America Beautiful pass.
