Have been to this park a number of times. Bathrooms were clean. The staff is young, friendly, and always helpful. The site we stayed in was very private, the camp grounds is located in the woods. You have to sacrifice level ground for this privacy, but for me the rustic feel and privacy hugely out-weighs the 5 inch drop my site had. We did not get electricity and water this time, but have gotten it in the past. Leave at an odd time, or there will be a long line at the dump station! We camped here in a Motorhome.
Beautiful state park, and the staff was very accommodating. However, the sites are short, not at all level, and the roads are tight. We were here in a 35' motorhome, and had a very hard time getting it level. Staff helped us find a better site. Mosquitos were the size of small birds this year! Go prepared with lots of bug spray! We camped here in a Motorhome.
Unfortunately the bathrooms were closed for the season. When we questioned the early closure, the staff said, "I'll be leaving in a couple weeks." We wondered why they didn't close them in "a couple weeks." The wooded campground was filled beautifully with fall colors. It was a lovely quiet place to stay. We would definitely return another time. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Camping in October means bring your own water and find someplace to dump as dump station is closed. Merrill is within biking range and some interesting places to see. You can fish either on the river or Lake Alexander. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
