A great park for family camping. The lake is a great place to swim and play in the summer. Campsites are well maintained and in close proximity to a bath house. The bath house was clean and well lit.

Campsites have a picnic table, fire ring with grate, and flat tent pad. There are RV spots with all the appropriate hook ups as well.

Good trail, about 1,400 feet in elevation but never got really step. This trail is extremely popular so the trail was very crowded but the view was worth it, Amazing 270 degree view of the entire Catawba Valley. This trail is great for dogs.

Fun Hike and nice waterfall at the end. It's pretty steep on the way back up though. Just be prepared for that.

Took the kids (both 4) was fine for them. Paved path to wooden walkway over the marsh to the island loop. Kids had a blast and nice easy hike. Only con was that it was fairly crowded. You wont be alone out there. The Stafford county website has a map that shows the location of the quarries on the island (added as a Helpful Link)

An absolute must if you love beautiful scenery and a challenge. I recommend starting from the bottom so that you can turn around at any point. The waterfalls get better and better as you continue up the canyon so you have good reason to keep pushing.
