I took my family wife and two girls 8 and 5 for the partial week. We tent camped on a elect. and water site. Each site had a picnic table and sand tent pad. The Latrines are spotless. The trails are mild and family oriented. I have been there twice in five years both times it has rained one day of a 4 day stay. Deer roam, birds alover, and in the spring the river runs fast. This stay the temps were 75 day and 45 night. Bring your own wood to the site. They do sell it 4.00 a bundle and ice as well. town is max 20 minutes each direction. Dripping springs is the better of the two towns.

There are too many great hikes in this park to know where to begin. It's best explored off the beaten path and near enough to the river to find cliffs, creeks and springs. My favorite hike involves parking in the primitive camping parking lot, then heading off in the direction of the river, steering clear of the Twin Falls protected area. It's best if you hit Bee Creek just upstream from this area, then rock-hop up the creek, exploring the numerous pools and cliffs that line the narrowing canyon. As you near the Wolf Mountain trail, you'll find a series of deep, clear pools cut out of the rock streambed that make natural jacuzzis. I've never tried one out, but will some day. This area is also dotted with numerous springs which flow from holes in creek bank.
