The gentle flowing Big Cottonwood River meanders through this southern park. The sand-bottom swimming pond, picnic area, campgrounds and group center attract many visitors every summer to this very popular state park. The terrain is diverse, offering views of wooded river bottoms, oxbow marshes and open grasslands. Hikers and cross-country skiers enjoy the flat trails on the bottom of the valley or more challenging routes on the oak-shaded bluffs. Visit historic stone buildings crafted by Works Progress Administration(WPA)crews. Vegetative features include goat prairies, small white lady's sli ...

Just went for a short day hike on one of the trails. We saw 2 fawns that were about 15 feet away from us and not scared at all. After watching them eat for about 5 minutes we moved on. A bit later we saw 2 more deer that were not scared of us either. It was great to see the wildlife up close like that and not scared!

This park seemed to be quite busy and well maintained. They have a very nice sand bottom pool which seems to be the main attraction. Unfortunately the campgrounds are VERY open with no trees or foliage seperating you from your neighbors. If you like privacy your best bet are the hike in sites or sites on the outer loops like 85 or 87. We didn't spend the night and it didn't look like much fun to camp here since all of the sites were so open.

It was nice because they do have the man-made pool for swimming. The campgrounds are very open though, so you don't have much privacy like some of the more wooded lots we've been on. There are 3 backpack sites, that are very private, and it's not too far to walk into those. They are 91, 92 and 93. We stayed in the rustic campsite, which is where you have to pump your own water and no showers. we did walk to the semi-modern campsite and showered, so that worked, but the pumping is harder and you definitely will need two people doing it at the same time. Site 62 was the only really wooded one, set back a little more than the others (rustic campsite). I biked through the semi modern campsite and it was pretty much the same layout there as well, more of the open space for camping. There's no paved trails, so just hiking. Some really pretty ones through the woods though!
