Need to Know
If you plan to stay overnight there are several campsite options as well as cabins built by the Civilian Conservation Corps.
Blue Suck Falls is a loop ride that gives you a true sense of the park. You'll ride through Mountain Laurel, cross streams, and be rewarded with both a waterfall and scenic vista at the Tuscarora Overlook and cabin.
When you're done with your ride, take a cool dip in the lake, relax on the sandy beach, and grab a bite to eat at the restaurant.
