This small park is beautiful but some sites are not suitable for a 40 class A and toad. The gravel sites are 50ft pull-thru with electric/water but most have a bend with close trees that may make them inaccessible to big rigs. There is one...More

The RV campsites are well/kept. Very quite. Lots of paces to walk your pet. Bath house was clean and had a washer and dryer. Level campsites, many are pull-through. Pump out station conveniently located.

We used the park as a starting point for a bike ride. The bridge is quite rustic, yet beautiful with the cascading waterfall. Be careful if you ride your bike across the wooden planks, as it is not suited for thin bicycle tires. The park...More

I don't know for sure, but I would assume they WILL NOT have kitchen utensils supplied in the cabins. If I were you, I would purchase disposable cutlery, plates, etc. when you stop in Athens.

Yes, it's safe to drive thru. Put your windows down as the smell is unique to an old wooden bridge. Then park your car and walk thru, stopping to enjoy the view of the river from the window at mid-bridge.
