  • Our church reserved one of the shelters for a Labor Day Cookout. The shelter we had (#5), had bathrooms connected to the shelter, 2-3 charcoal stationary grills, and a playground next to it. There was a wide open grassy area we were able to use for playing games. Our daughter and some other young people from the church went to the putt-putt and had a great time playing there. Overall, we had a great time there and would enjoy going back.
  • Great park with plenty to do from fishing in a stream to zip lining through the tree tops. Also has camping area, swimming pool, mini golf and I know at least 1 playground, if not 2 or more. Great for the whole family
