Always friendly and relaxing. Love the quaint downtown and restaurants. Even though this was the first year in forever where we had some rain, when it cleared it was gorgeous as usual.

The park was ok, I had been told on the phone they had full hookups but arrived to no sewer which I should have known being a state park. All was fine, we were just there two nights for a pre-wedding party.

We drove the short drive to the Park and Museum. The museum was great for the kids to explore. The views from the park are stunning.

This state park is well worth the time to drive through. At each curve in the road you can get a different view that are all are impressive. The roads are a bit tight but there plenty of areas to park.
