The park closes at dusk. It's free. It's a short maybe 10-20min easy hike through the woods down to the river or up to the old homestead site. The river is great! You can swim, relax and have a picnic or set up a hammock. The site is beautiful!

I just went for the first time, 2days ago. We went back again today!! The kids and husband and myself all had a good time playing in the water. Haven't gone on more than 1 trail either. Its great! Moderate to difficult trails but my kids are 7 and 9 and my husband and I are 40. We saw people with smaller kids, I recommend you keep them close! Also, not stroller friendly. No dogs allowed. No fishing allowed. They have parking spaces right next to Halls On The River and across the street. We had a blast!
