Visited the park with my two grandchildren, had a good picnic lunch. We got to climb some rocks, hike and skip rocks in the streams. The park was clean and well maintained.

Found this state park on the Internet while researching area for Lake Glendale Stables. Short distance and scenic drive. I think this would be a nice getaway to camp, they have some cabins. A little scenery when you enter enjoying water and some rocks. Seems you might need to do some hiking to explore more of this park. Worth seeing if you enjoy the outdoors. Just kiddie corner across the street is a chocolate factory and ice cream shop.

On Monday, there were three RV's in the State Park and one of them was the host. Cost is great for the RV world. $6 for tents but no showers.

Somewhat busy for here over the weekend but on Sunday afternoon, everybody was gone.

Lots of first come/first get spots that can't be reserved on RESERVE AMERICA.

This was a hot week and there are plenty of shaded, paved spots for RVers. The pool was inviting.

The Chocolate Factory across the street sells ice.

There are no showers, bring you own.

Don't expect to see staff members. Fires are only allowed in stoves, but it provided ample space to have a fire. Fire kindling was packed onto our stoves as we arrived. No nearby showers that can be walked to. Morning and evening chants from nearby "impact center" is heard. Pool is nice, but no heater. Only place with 15 miles to get ice is chocolate factory with very limited hours. Firewood for sale? Missed that. Beautiful natural sights. Frogs joined our campfire fun. We saw baby foxes. The spring is a nice back drop. Nice asphalt pads to park campers on. Ample shade in spots. Sites are close to each other but staggered nicely for privacy. Asphalt roads in park so bikes are good to bring if you like hills.

After out little chocolate factory pig -out, we figured that we needed to alk some of those calories off and went to Dixion Springs State Park across the street. We were the only ones there at that time at the very entrance to the park and got out with the dogs and walked around admiring the various plants and trees as well as the abundant wildlife all around us. We saw squirrels, birds, and one deer who spotted us and disappeared into the tree line., Guess you can't sneak up on them with two chihuahas. The thought about buying a camper crossed our minds but then I remembered that my dad has a pop up camper he just got last month. Wonder if he has broken it in yet? There is so much to see in this park and really needs time set aside to fully enjoy it.
