This authentic representation of the fort that Joseph Martin was comissiioned to build in the 1700's is extremely detailed and amazes me how the human species perservered during this time in history. If you're lucky you'll catch the reinactors in full character living of life of hard work, dedication and inginuity

Yes, my son, grandson & I went camping in the campgrounds in Oct of 2012 We really
had a blast. We spent 3 days & nights. The first night, we nearly froze, second night
a heat wave, third night ,a wash out. We would wake to the sound of bears & wolves.
We tried to climb to the Sand Cave 2000 ft above sea level but we only got to 1,800
ft. I mean this was a trip in it's own. I still think it is more than 2000 ft up that mountain.
It took us 4 hrs up and 3&1/2 down. Pretty good trip for a 72 year old, I think. We
really learned how to build fires, because we cooked all our meals on the open pit.
We plan to go back some time and continue the hike to the cave. I did not know all this
was up there ,when I was growing up as a child in Ewing, Va.

We make a point to travel and visit as many of our national and state parks as we can. Although this one does not have much to offer in the way of amenities, it would be a nice picnic spot and break point during a trip. The major downside to this park in our experience was the staff. Normally we find them very cordial and pleasant. Never before have we encountered such standoffish and almost rude personnel at a state or national park.
