Stunning views. Easy access. Dog friendly, on leash. We didn't camp, just spent the day. However, the camp spots looked great. Great playground equipment for those traveling with children. Nice picnic areas.

This is a great park. It seems to be a popular camping location. We really enjoyed the view. The bunker was just frosting on the cake.
