    This park has a lot to offer, as does the area that surrounds the park. We camped in the larger campground and although the sites were close, we still felt as if we had enough room. We had water and electricity in the site, as well as a fire ring, picnic table, and lantern hook. The bathrooms and showers were clean and well maintained. The trading post at the front of the campground sells firewood ($6.50) and ice ($3). One thing that was kind of unexpected was the amount of day visitors the park experienced on Saturday and Sunday. Travel to the East Gate and Nature Center where the trails all start was not allowed by car due to capacity. This threw a wrench in our plans because we had an infant and toddler and wanted to walk the creek trail but were unable to get there. We traveled off site instead and visited some lesser known sites off the beaten path. Enjoyed the experience overall, but it would have been nice if the host or store attendant would have warned us about capacity issues upon check in.
