Positives:  Ferne Clyffe is a beautiful place and cared for very well. With lake activities, a multitude of hiking trails, and lots of rocks to climb on, there’s something for everyone.

Negatives: As with many state parks, you only have water and electric on site, and the lots are built for smaller camping vehicles for the most part.

This place is made for weekend visitors or someone passing through; it is not for someone looking to stay more than a week or two.  But while you are here, there is plenty to do and lots to look at.  This is a beautiful state park.
