Impromptu stop on our way home from Cincinnati. The park has a nice nature center and reenactment farm open seasonally. We parked at the nature center off season. There is a very nice gravel trail here. Easy walk about 1.5 miles. We combined it with the moderate trail up to the campground because my daughter needed to use the restroom and that is the only place I knew one would be open off season. Trail up was muddy due to all the rain but manageable. Bathroom at campground was clean. Kids played on the small playground for a while before hiking back to the car. Very nice park
If using the dump station be sure to choose the one to the right. You may still need to tilt your camper to get your tanks to empty.
Clean state park with lots to do! Pool, caves, hiking, and camping. Close to the first state capital so educational too!
