  • An okay state park. We stopped because we saw the signs on I-71/I-75 and knew there was a fairly new museum on the property. Wish we'd also looked up their times of operation though because they were closing right when we got there at 4pm! The park ranger was nice enough to let us use the restrooms but we didn't want to hold her up any more than we had to. We still were able to walk the short trails by the museum though and to see the salt springs and read about the history of the park.
  • I love this State Park. From the many hiking trails to sports courts and camping area this area place has it all. I usually take my dog through the trails and over by the Bison roaming area. They really are amazing creatures. Everything is well maintained and clearly marked. Highly recommend.
