The 5,000-acre-plus Mary Minerva McCroskey State Park, because of its remote location and no-fee policies, is a great place to spend a few days hiking and camping. Two of the three campgrounds in the park are located on mountaintops and the third is on a ridgeline. This makes for nearby, multidirectional views as you leave the tent in the morning. Wild turkeys, elk, and white-tailed deer are commonly seen throughout the vast park. Dogs are allowed but must be kept under close control. The trails in McCroskey State Park are multiple-use, so you may meet horses, bikes, and ORVs. Most of the time traffic is light enough that this is not a problem.
