Traveling with two small kids and decided we weren't ready to come home yet. I was on Trip Advisor in the State Park parking lot looking for a place to stay and saw Mitchell Creek Inn from there. I drove over and was met by a very friendly staff and got a Kitchenette Room for a VERY reasonable price. Once checked in we walked around the grounds a little. There is a little creek winding its way through the back area where there is some seating and a firepit. They built us a fire later that evening and provided us with sticks for roasting. There were even some LARGE fish to watch on their way through. The owners were so helpful and friendly. I even talked them into coming out to the fire to chat with us a bit. Very comfy beds. Just a tip not a complaint that you do need to bring your own toiletries. I would classify it as no frills but a hidden gem of a place. We will go back!
