  • While this park is has little in the way of comforts for people, it is very scenic, and has miles of trails. Some of the trails are minimally groomed, but very fin to walk, and well worth the trip. If you like getting out into nature, and if you are a shutterbug, this is a great place to spend a day. Ther is camping avalible here as well.
  • This place is amazing. Go. Fish, hike, enjoy.
  • The park does not just have a clever name, it is absolutely beautiful here! The staff is very friendly, and will answer any questions that you have. Fishing this late in the season was a little tough, as the water vegetation was very overgrown, but still pulled out a couple of large bass and crappie. We will definitely be going back!
  • As many years before, this year camping trip very good. Hope, Park may soon invest some to fix restrooms in Chase Point Campground. Hosts, Mary and Carl the best: very friendly, helpful, hope to meet them again next year!!
  • Great park to visit. Good hiking trails, good fishing, nice lakes for kayaking.
