This is a great park for 'backcountry hiking'. The past two times we've visited, we've rented one of the small, rustic log cabins that they have, during the winter months. They're great!! It's like being one yours own secluded pond in the middle of nowhere with nothing but a (very nice) outhouse, a nice wood burning stove and large relatively comfty beds. I highly recommend renting one for a weekend or even a night as a great get away and for so cheap! (only ~$30 or so a night.) the perfect peace of bliss for a couple who might want to spend some time quality alone.
This is a great park, with good trails for beginners. It is the first place I took my daughter hiking. The trails are easy, but long enough to give you the flavor of what brings us to the outdoors. The camping sites are close enough, that we beginners who don't pack right, or forget something, can easily hike the mile or so back to the car--learning a lesson but not losing the joy of hiking.
what can i say, this trail was ment for those who like to camp with out a whole lot of walking. the camp sites are really nice and very close to the parking lot. all trails are well marked, you can even navigate in the dark with no lighting at all. the trails are nice and easy, a few hills but nothing too crazy. it is a beautiful hike through some of the most amazing hardwood trees!
