  • Great park for walking, running or exploring. Many trails to go down. Plenty of bogs and creeks. Many locals use this park as a means to get their canoe or kayak in Cedar Creek. The park has become more strict over water craft drop offs in recent years though, so beware that you may not be able to drive down to the drop off point (the white bridge). There is an historic village in the park, but not much seems to be done with it these days.
  • Beautiful and historical! A great place to take a walk in with your dog's or even family or a friend!
  • A pretty straightforward state park. Some historic buildings by the parking area and trails out beyond them. Cedar Creek runs all through the park and looks like it's got a good current for tubing, kayaking, or canoeing. The woods on either side of the creeks and streams get pretty thick, so you would be able to see quite a lot of area that you wouldn't be able to get to on land. It would definitely be a cool trip and I'll be coming back in warmer weather to do it. As for hiking, I don't think the trails are anything special. There's one area where all of the trees are knocked down all around the trail, I'm not sure if they're doing some type of tree removal project? I think these trails would be better for running than hiking. All in all, I'll definitely be back to go kayaking, but I'm not sure I would return just to hike.
  • I used to go there with my family 55 years ago when no one knew about it. I was three years old. Some weekends we would be the only people. I learned to swim in the cedar water and to beware of mild water currents. We had picnics in our cars during the breif rainstorms, and then go right back to swimming when it stopped. Small sandy beaches near the water were perfect for our family of five. I learned about the creatures in the brush and what to not touch. It was pristine then. Dad taught us to respect nature, and so did a man named Shorty, who used to watch over the place. He would tell us the stories of how Double Trouble came to be and how it got it's name from the two beavers. Dad is now 88 years old and cannot walk well. I would love to find a way to get him back there, a polaris or supercharged wheel chair? It would be wonderful to see the look on his face for one last visit.
  • Great stream to float on. Good bogs
