  • A great canoeing trip and excellent family outing! Make sure to bring a camera as you are likely to see lots of wildlife. We saw otters, eagles and seals.
  • The bikes are in excellent shape. The bike trail is long and monotone, except the nice vista view s to the Big River. The canoe is great but the water up close is not as pretty as when viewed from the bike trail. We saw a harbor seal and got as close as 20 feet. He is as cute as a puppy! But there was only one.
