Excellent place to hike, or bike in the many trails. Also nice beach and picnic area that is well kept. I personally love the 4 mile hike to the campsites and back to the beach an excellent 1000 calorie workout!!

To get to the campgrounds use the address 3509 Teggerdine. That will get you to the RV campground. The gale Rd. address will not.

One of the best mountain bike trails in the state. Trail is technical and can be challenging. And the scenery is beautiful. If you like to mountain bike you must try this trail.
