  • Amazing, the park is like nothing I have seen before. The trees in the lake are a sight to behold. There are campgrounds, trails, fishing, picnic tables, so many wonderful things to see and do. The entrance fees are very reasonable and the staff were very friendly. There are tours available as well. if you are in there area this is a place that should be on your list to visit
  • We went on a night hike with a park ranger and quite a few others. It was very interesting. Although, we could've potentially seen/heard more if people respected what they were repeatedly asked - to not talk it be loud. That never happened - but the park employee handled it very very well. I highly recommend visiting.
