The campground, now run by the State Park System, was
built by the Civilian Conservation Corps before WWII, giving it a
character all its own.
The Main Campground
The campsites in the main campground are mediium-sized, but wooded,
shaded, and nicely spaced. They will accomodate tents and smaller
Across the highway from the main campground are 5 RV sites (with hookups and showers), and two sites near the marina (not shown). We cannot recommend the RV sites, as they are close to the highway and railroad. The 2 marina sites, while rather plain, are located in the prettiest part of the Park, and are strongly recommended for those who need only moderate privacy during the day.
The Group Camp
space for up to 200 with 2 Adirondack Shelters
in my opinion, the prettiest part of the Park by far, with the best views of "the Rock"
Climbing "The Rock"
The Trail is easy enough for people of all ages
the views on the way up are spectacular
My faithful dog Bocachica finally reaches the top
As everyone might expect, the views from the very top are even better than those climbing up:
Hikers should remember that this 5100-acre Park has 20 miles of other
hiking trails. Most feel that the views from these trails far excedes
those from the top of Beaon Rock itself.
