  • Very cool historical hike along the river. Decent playground, picnic shelters with grills. Along the trail there are benches to eat at or, like we did, make your way onto a river island. Very few hikers on a Saturday. Easy flat gravel trails. Bathrooms at the trail head. Need 2 or 3 bucks cash to park. Overall veru cool, will definitely go back.
  • I love this park. It is quiet and peaceful. It offers hiking trails, canoeing( rental in season or bring your own.) A picnic area suitable for large crowds, a playground for the kiddies and historical perspective on how the river was used for trade. The rangers are friendly and Knowledgable. I have personally been going to this park for over twenty years. The spider Lilly festival draws people from all over.
  • Interesting Historical architectural landmark. Staff were very informative on the history of the place despite it's only operating for 5 years. Lots of interesting plants animals & fungi. Fairly easy walk, mostly level well groomed trails about 2.5 miles round trip. However wear your repellent. The big life is also plentiful.
  • I have been walking my dogs here since the early 90's, great park with great views of the Catawba. You may catch a glipse of the bald eagles that live in the park if your lucky.
  • Great park. I'd love to see some more trails constructed and extended, but it's still a winner regardless.
