  • It was a calm, overcast day, and I found myself resting at the side of a large oak tree, admiring the beauty of the woods that surrounded me. The sunless sky covered the woods over the treetops which created a canopy over my head. Absolutely beautiful...!!!
  • Very scenic and despite the recent violent storms well kept and safe to take children through. You can go fishing and kayaking and overall it is a great place to walk and clear your head of worries. -My friend got married at their visitors center and it was a beautiful occasion and the staff were helpful and welcoming to the guests. -My girlfriend and I just moved into an apartment on the edge of the reserve and the bug situation is not too bad also being a few minutes from lake Joanis has its perks
