  • Great disc golf course running through portions of the historical site. Currently has 9 holes, but they're wanting to add more. That would be amazing; It's a great way to showcase the ruins. Rangers and employees all extremely knowledgeable and friendly. Will continue to visit again and again. There is always something to discover.
  • Absolutely enjoy this area. It’s our third time going and we love to fish here. Bathrooms, picnic area with tables. Beautiful scenery. We went on a cloudy day. Seen a bald eagle. Camping locations near by and a market. Swimming and hiking. Lots too see and the beach is not to far either.
