  • I have always enjoyed my time here at Cedarock Park. The park managers and rangers are all so nice and kind. Back in August my Husband and I got married here and the parks and rec. department bent over backwards to make it as easy as possible. They have good shelters, camp sites , hiking trails and disc golf courses also. Very family friendly with an awesome playground and the parking is phenomenal. Highly recommend this park!
  • Very nice park/trails. What I like most about it this place is the historical significance - that it was once a working farm with the buildings still standing. I also really enjoy seeing the farm animals up close. Read the signs and you will get a better feeling of what this farm was really like. The trails are marked fairly well but do not take advantage of the views of the ponds. Most of the trails are in the woods. We went on the Spoon Branch (blue) trail to the Connector (White) trail. It was great until we had to turn back on the white trail because it became a swamp. Tip - go to the furthest parking lot - the playground and views of a pond are better than you get at the first pond. But don’t forget to go back and see the farm buildings and animals. Great Disc golf course. Horses are allowed. And dogs (of course) on leashes. Trail maps are provided by signs.
