Site 4 - McCully Heritage Project
Beautiful and relaxing
We had a great time camping on site 4!! We especially loved all of the different trail hiking options available in the area. Everything was clean and well-kept. We would definitely return and support the McCully-heritage project again in the future.

Site 3 - McCully Heritage Project
Our family stayed on site 5 for an extended holiday and was very pleased with the appearance and upkeep of that site (and all the other sites), plenty of clean bathhouses were available as well. Quiet, clean, well maintained and very nice staff!!! Would recommend and we will definitely be coming back to camp there to explore and experience all the seasons

Site 3 - McCully Heritage Project
Overall positive experience! 8/10. Reasonable accommodations. One recommendation for travelers would be to bring your own firewood. The wood provided, which is of course generous, was not cured, so it did not burn well. I was fortunate to have brought a bundle with, otherwise a fire would have been much harder to maintain. Additionally, the showers and bathroom facilities were probably above average cleanliness for this kind of situation, but a little TLC on the bathrooms would have elevated the experience. The campsite we stayed at, #3 was really well maintained, and very flat where we pitched our tent, which made our nights sleep very comfortable. One note, there’s not a great place to hang hammocks in site #3. You’re far enough from other sites that, although you are in line of site, sound does not travel across. There were hiking trails which we did not get a chance to take advantage of, but from what we saw were well kept and with lots of options. We may visit again! It’s a great mission, and I’m happy to support it.

Stunning Location
Though I did not ultimately stay the night, I was grateful to have come across such a beautiful (and beautifully maintained) site like the ones at McCully’s.

It was my daughter's first time camping and she loved it! I chose McCullys because of the park and the trails. We enjoyed fishing at the pond and all the little things we saw during our walks. It was hot but the campsite was completely shaded so we were able to bring our dogs. Beautiful place all around!!
