There really is something for everyone here. We stayed for just a few hours and did a short hike and visited the historical site. Beautiful views from the top of piedmont overlook trail.

At the campsites, yes. There aren't any at the historical site, but there is an area within the park with picnic tables. You go right shortly after passing the first guard house.

We have to have at least one person that is 18 years old. The reservation must be in that person's name and they much be present.
