We recently camped overnight at this park. It seems that apartments have recently been developed around this park. So at one time, it may have been more secluded. If you are visiting with young kids, we recommend the outdoor pool in Franklin Park. We had...More

Beautiful, large State Park with separate camping/RV area. Lots of open spaces for picnics, and there is a playground for the young ones. We walked on the hiking trails and enjoyed the solitude.

It's a cute park close to town. The campsites are shady and spacious. There is plenty of green space for playing games. There is a playground for the kids. The gentleman at the gate was extremely friendly and helpful. I would absolutely stay here again.

Stayed here on Memorial Day weekend. We arrived without reservations and were fortunate to get the last unreserved spot. We were only pitching a tent, didn't need any hook-ups. It is a bit odd to camp in the middle of a city, but I had...More
