This was our first visit to the park and we loved it. The campground was beautiful. The lake access at our site was a little difficult. There were large rocks that made it difficult to access the lake. We were able to do a little fishing here. There was abundant wildlife around the campground with deer, rabbits, ducks and geese. The front attendants were courteous and pleasant. No complaints from me.
We had a great time camping at Hard Labor Creek campground. The sites were level, shady and well maintained. The bathrooms were old but clean, which is all you can ask for. There is not a lot of things for kids to do. The observatory is open one night a month. If you can plan your trip for one of the open houses at the observatory I would highly recommend it. We were able to see Jupiter, the moon and several binary stars. Very educational.
This was one of the nicest parks that we've camped in. The scenery was spectacular. The park itself was pretty and very well taken care of. The campsites were large and level. Both the east and west rim campsites were nice. The west rim sites were a little more private. The bathrooms were clean and very well supplied. It is probably better than most state parks.
This is one of my family's favorite parks for camping. There are lots of places to visit and things to do within an easy driving distance to this state park. The bathrooms were as clean and well stocked. Although the weather was quite hot and muggy our shady site made the visit pleasant.
