  • This is a lovely place with creeks, woods, swamp and a small nature museum. The camping and picnic areas are pretty and there are nice trails.  more »
  • Peaceful, big, full of trails. Beautiful park with amazing trails. Be aware you can get lost there! Bring a map!  more »
  • This nature preserve is the perfect place for camping, hiking, picnics, or just general outdoor activity. The welcoming staff are always open to questions. It is the perfect taste of wilderness for those still reserved about going all in, as the park has several on site bathrooms and buildings to ensure the safety and comfort of visitors. There are beautiful campgrounds that are well maintained and garbage free, and easy trails for those with young kids. I suggest the Overlook trail, as it is one of the most gorgeous in the park, with a vast view of the area at the end of the trail.
  • Great place to go to learn and have fun. It's a quiet place surrounded by trees and lakes and bushes. It's also very relaxing. While your there you can take a tour and hike all the way around the place. You can also look at small creatures in the lake through a magnifying glass. It's also a great place to fish, but you have to release every thing you catch. There's also a playground and a picnic area to spend time with your family. 5/5.
