“Great Day for a Hike”

Linn Run State Park
Ranked #1 of 2 things to do in Rector
Attraction details
Reviewed 28 May 2018 via mobile

Decided to visit Linn Run State Park on this beautiful Memorial Day weekend. We went on Adam Falls Trail. It was a mile long loop. About half of the trail was very rocky and slippery after the recent rains. I would recommend hiking shoes for traction. Not too crowded at all.
Picnic tables are available for after the hike to have a snack. We drove past nice looking cabin for rent within the park as well. Stop at the park office for a map.

We spent a week in a "primitive cabin" which had a stove, fridge, and microwave although not running water. However the pump was only about 50 feet away. The creek which tumbled past the front of the cabin was quite high at the beginning, after some heavy rain, but was just a picturesque babbling brook in a few days. We enjoyed a couple of nature hikes with the park ranger, one of which went to Adams falls and also travelled a few miles up the mountain to the bog at the top which was also well worth a visit. The shower/bathroom facilities were clean and nearby, and well-lit and secure (a key was needed.) The park staff were very considerate and helpful. It was a shady and cool refuge in summer. Ligonier was only a short drive away for a little history at the fort, and shopping.

stayed 3-23 to 3-25
--easy instructions for late arrival --grab key at the office which was 2 min up the road. We had just had a major snow even a few days earlier but surprisingly the roads were in great shape. The cabin was heated well on our arrival --cleaning was just ok..there were many cobwebs but the main issue was the fridge was kinda nasty--the area by the crispers on the bottom looked like there was blood on them--yuck --
The park looks very nice --due to the weather we didnt do much traveling . The park is very secluded as in , little to no cell service but thats what we went for ;) There is a giant eagle about 8 miles away --so that was nice.
I understand that these are rustic cabins and I knew there were pit toilets but also a bathhouse . The pit toilets actually stank which I was surprised by , considering it was 20 degrees--i was ok with this due to being close to the shower house with flush toilets but there was only 1 toilet and 2 showers --seems very odd when you have 9 cabins to only have 1 toilet and 1 sink . My husband had to wait in line in the morning --
All in all it was a good trip --very pretty suroundings--we had a stream right outside our cabin which was awesome . They also have 2 chairs ,a fire pit and a grill outside --with a picnic table under the porch .

The park is beautiful, but the people running it are incredible too. While staying at Linn Run we learned our apartment had been destroyed. The park manager and park ranger, as well as maintenance helped us extend our stay and made sure we were comfortable, warm and safe. I can not recommend this park enough. The cabins are gorgeous, the woods are enchanting. Spend as much time here as possible, hopefully under better circumstances than I did.
