  • Beautiful place! Went to scout it out for camping and spent the day hiking around. Hiked to the top of a mountain and the view was spectacular. Trails are well marked. Primitive campsites look awesome. There’s a lot here - a small museum which is interesting, a park office with trail maps, a common room for events, and a public swimming pool somewhere (saw it on the map but didn’t find it). I will definitely be back to camp here.
  • Great place for a day trip. Hiking, a boat launch and boat rentals at the boat house. Camp sites have good looking tent pads, fire ring with grates, picnic table and lantern hooks. Equestrian trails look fun though we didn't ride. Woods are unique in that they regularly do controlled burns to keep the volatile underbrush toned down. Leaves the forest mysteriously ominous. Seems like a big wind storm of some kind came through a few years ago with lots of large trees down throughout.
  • Gorgeous, and a great hike. Awesome views from the top! Also check out the old quarry at the top; humans have used it for 10000 years. The museum is small but well-maintained and informative. A lot of tree falls have happened in the past decade, so the forest seems a little sparse in spots, but it's totally natural. Trails are fairly well maintained but can be difficult to follow without blazes. An excellent state park!
  • Great hike! Not as busy as other hiking areas. There were a lot of downed trees along hiking paths. They need to put up / replace more hiking path placards, and PLEASE redo your map. It was quite confusing to navigate through this park, but it was beautiful.
  • Hiked a 4 mile trail through the woods. Lots of up and down. Views of the river probably better in early spring or fall when leaves gone but trail was nice. Signage could be better, wasn't sure how to get back to boathouse area. The lake/river looks like a great place for boating. Canoe and kayak rentals available at reasonable prices. I'd like to return in the fall. The park is large with really nice woods and good trails. Some snacks available at boathouse. Didn't check out the pool or campgrounds. Pretty, woods and good size park.
