  • The park is amazingly beautiful, great choice for camping, enjoy some fresh air, hiking, waterfalls,watching birds and wild life. The sky at night is so full of stars! It's a quite big park and maybe two, three or even four days might be necessary to see everything, but anything u see of it it will worth it! I do recommend it!
