Excellent park. Staff were super helpful at orienting me for hiking, friendly and informative. The hiking trails were well-marked with only minor exceptions. The bike trails are beautifully designed and extensive. Mid-week was a great time to hike, with no one else on the trails.
For a visit to the outdoors, this is a great place to enjoy a hike, boating, or fishing. For fishermen (amateur to pro) there's an awesome pier, with benches and plenty of room to spread out. You can while away a few good hours without realizing it. The bathrooms are clean (I experienced them midday on a weekday, YMMV). I didn't order anything at the snack shop, but they had an exceptional menu. Boats are available by the snack shop, along with a game of minigolf. Very nice area for the great outdoors.
