We enjoyed our short winter walk on the trail. It was beautiful. It makes for a great morning or afternoon. The trail isn’t marked but if you follow people down the hill, you’ll see where to go. more »
The campsite is beautiful. There was good hiking trails. There is also the water mill. The bathrooms are primitive but clean and well maintained. Lots of camping activities. Can be very muddy though. Make sure you have rain boots. Had a lot of fun!
Really nice park, ample parking, well maintained. At one end there is a bird watching pavilion and a nice walk down to the river. My daughter and I go here to throw rocks in the river. At the other end is an open field and play area, as well as a bathroom that always seems clean. BBQ grill are also available.
