use spray to protect from chiggers etc.!!! We were disappointed to find the state park building closed on a weekend afternoon. Trails were nice not spectacular. Nice for creek fishing.

Medoc Mountain has great trails with varying terrain. The summit trail had more of an incline (hence the name) and other trails were much more gentle. I would recommend Medoc Mountain to anyone who wants to get out and experience some trails. Next time our...More

There are 12 hook-up sites with electric and water for RV's and there is a dump station. There are water faucets at various places for the tent sites.

Ours is a 32' class c. There were bigger class A homes there. Shouldn't be a problem. Roads in are nice, we came from I95 area , camping area isn't very big, but shouldn't have any problem maneuvering in there.
