  • This is a great place to hike through the woods. I love finding the wildflowers in spring! They have a lovely new visitor's center as well!

  • ALWAYS ENJOYABLE! Attended the Maple Festival on March 12, 2022. The pancake and sausage were wonderful. They have two batter pouring machines and griddles that make approx 20 pancakes per batch. The milk is provided by a local dairy farm. The cooks make the event fun when they throw a plain pancake from a spatula to kids who want them thrown to them. I don't have enough good things to say about this park
