This is a very pretty park, with cabins and camping. We spent an afternoon hiking the trails and seeing if we could spot any birds. It is mainly hiking trails and camping spots, you will have to make your own fun here.

My husband and I stayed here over the last weekend in March and really enjoyed the quietness. It was quite a work out walking the hills but beautiful scenery. The hikes were harder than our flat Az hikes but well worth it! We were in site 10 and shared a concrete space with another RV but we were not too close but not far away either. Our picnic sites were away from each other which were nice. Plenty of room to pitch a tent next to our RV if needed. Close to a trail and away from the busier camping groups. We would definitely stay here again. No issues with our 5G T-Mobile phones. Driving here was a little twisty roads but not too bad. We camped at William Heise County Park in a Motorhome.

I love camping here with my dog. We always camp in the cold months so the park is pretty much empty. It has good trails for hiking and biking. The sites are spacious and during the cold months you can spot deers and wild turkeys.
