One of the best parks!! We came to spend the day, introductory video let you know more about how it became a State Park. Also super instructive about your "footprint" in the natural landscape. The Junior Ranger Program is great and the Rangers are so kind. I came with 3 kids under 9 and they loved the climbing and adventure, they completed they ranger program seated in the top of a rock. Did the small trail but it was a 3hrs experience at our own pace.

My family use to hike this area when I was a kid so I brought my son here so he could enjoy what I did. I was told when making reservations that part of the range was by tour only but when we arrived I realized that included 3/4 of the whole area. We hiked the open mountain in an hour and a half. Tours have to be arranged a week in advance. We reserved 2 nights of camping but only stayed one.
I understand the changes were made due to vandalism but I was very disappointed by the changes.
We saw lots of wildlife and the bathrooms and campsites were in good working order.
I do recommend this place but do reserve as many tours as you can in order to see the whole beautiful place.
