  • Beautiful park. Went on the morning creekside nature walk led by Sue who was great with explaining all of the trees, plants and wildlife that live here. I saw quail, squirrels, woodpeckers, blue jays, robins, crows, deer, and a fox stroll through my campsite. There's also an observatory which has events here and there. Campsites on the right and in back as you drive across the bridge are well shaded. The others got full sun and it was 90 on the last weekend of September. Lots of trails and park is recovering well. Recommend hiking early in the day.
  • Such an amazing place! Clean and quiet(unless we’re there) made a new friend, Emily, one of the hosts, played hula hoop and flags with me! I think we found more family. Can’t wait to move in!
