  • We went for the first time today and visited the beach area. We had a magnificent time. The kids had a blast and were the best kind of tired when it was time to go home. Lifeguards were on top of everything. Bathrooms were clean and convenient. And very inexpensive. An all-around wonderful day!
  • Really amazing park that you can go tubing at. The depth of water changes from shallow to pretty deep. I recommend water shoes because the river is rocky and slippery. The current is stronger than it looks in some parts of the river so I’d also recommend a life jacket if you aren’t a swimmer. As someone from NYC, it was a mix between the lazy river at a water park and being in Central Park, but created by nature. If want to feel connected to nature and like a little adventure but don’t want to travel too far, this is it. It’s also a good day trip.
