Beautiful state park! Spacious lots, walking trails everywhere. A little hard to maneuver with our toad around the sharp corners to get to the campground area. Since it is off season, they come to you to collect the night's fees which are very reasonable. Tables and fire rings were provided. Only drawback was the sound of the trains in the night, which was every few hours. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a fascinating area, and despite some disappointments, I'm glad we stayed here. The Mounds were very serene, and the pool was nice; especially, the part for young children. The shower and pool house were not very clean. There were bugs and a bit of debris in both. The park trails were not clearly marked (even the campground worker agreed with us on this!) and the map was little help. We walked for nearly an hour circling one of the mounds on both sides before finding it. It was, in fact, only a 15 minute walk from our campsite. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We camped here last April and enjoyed it so we chose to stop overnight this year on the way to Arizona. Price was higher - we paid $17 last year, plus we paid an additional $5 to enter the park for a total of $30. The sites are large and easy to access. There are nice walking trails, and fire pits. The bathrooms are large but not heated, so are cold in April. This time around they were not clean - only one of 3 toilets functioned in the men's washroom. Our electric hook-up had an arcing problem with the 30 Amp service so we had to use the smaller 15/20amp plug. The ranger did come the next morning and service the washrooms. Overall a disappointing stay given how much we enjoyed the 2010 stay. It's still a nice overnight spot, or would make a nice weekend get-away. We would probably give the park one more try before writing it off. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Sites are good size and not too close together. Trails are nice, park programs are good too. We camped there twice this year. First visit was great. Second visit the Anderson Airport (behind the campground) was very busy and the train traffic was very high too, especially during the night. Made it hard to sleep. Shower house is closed for cleaning mid-morning, which makes the morning routine a challenge. Overall a nice campground. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
This is a beautiful park and we would stay here again. We had a level site under some beautiful shade trees. The site didn't have a lot of privacy but was fairly good size. There are many trails of different degrees of difficulty. This park is a gem to find. Although we couldn't get 50 amp, we were able to run one a/c on 30 amp. There were not individual site water hookups but there was water available several sites down. The beauty of the area overshadowed any downside in facilities. The huge pool looked wonderful as did the many picnic areas in the campground. We camped here in a Motorhome.
