All the state parks keep a certain amount of campsites for walk-ins. That being said, you'll need to get there early Friday to even get one of those. Carley State just down the way is an option if WW is booked.

I'd suggest you go down and find the answer to these questions.

We have a campsite reserved for a couple nights at Whitewater later this month. The goal is to take my daughter (9) and son (8) individually over the course of the weekend to get some quality time on the fly. However, I have never fished within the park.

First of all, I know this is a heavily pressured area, so I don't expect a lot of secrets divulged in this forum. With that said, if anybody wants to take pity on me and PM a little advice my way, I would appreciate it.

Questions:
* Has it been fishing well this year?
* Where would be a good stretch to take small kids who will not have waders?
* Outside of fishing, are there hikes/views to be sure to hit or avoid?

Thanks a lot for any help.

If you are going to be there on a weekend dont even bother with section in the park by the campsites. It will be a zoo and you'll probably run into kids playing in the river, throwing rocks etc. The Middle Branch south of the park would be your best bet. There are pasture sections that would be great for your kids. No major wading, bush walking, and room for back casts. It's pretty much all easement from 9 north into the park. Great hiking. Take the kiddos up to the fire tower. Beautiful SP, but keep in mind it's one of the busiest in the state.i

Why would you go to whitewater when you could come to Troutstock?

To avoid those that would try and collect a debt from him?
