“Uneven sites and broken dump.”

The trails are wide, wooded, and it is an easy walk downhill to the Cedar River, a cave, and rock climbing. 

The CG itself needs some work. Even with my leveling system I had to roll up on pads to one side. I walked the place...every site is tilted one way or another.

There are water spigots throughout the park but they are the outdated kind and need to be replaced with frost-proof hydrants. The water was not going to be turned on until the first of May from my understanding.

The dump lid was broken so I had to manually lift it (two pairs of gloves) and on top of that it was clogged so I barely jumped out of the way in time. Eek!

No rangers to be found. This place has so much potential. Too bad.

Great area. Nice shower house.
