Small state park with a lot of character, we were surprised by the friendly and helpful park staff. From the visitor center the the few park rangers on the trail, they all were polite and were more than willing to have a friendly conversation. The trails didn’t seem to challenging, there is some campsites, but they seem a little close to the water. We happened to cross a couple snakes in our path, I’m sure the water had a lot to do with it.
Nice park, but the trails were so overgrown they were unmanageable. Also, we went to both parts and the water fountains and pumps didn’t work at either. That being said it was quite beautiful and with a little more upkeep would be very impressive.
