  • Great park!!! Lots to do!!! Right on the river for great fishing!! Great shooting range! Camping and playgrounds! Always clean when I go there!! There is a smaller pond by the river before the big parking lot that is great for catching panfish and even small pike (so great for kids) LOTS of turtles so please watch where you drive, unfortunately I went through the other day and saw someone run over a turtle because they were speeding. Please DO NOT SPEED IN HERE!!! THERE ARE CHILDREN AND ANIMALS TO WATCH FOR!!! PLEASE respect wildlife to maintain healthy ecosystems for both your favorite recreational activities, but also so the park stays healthy. Animals were there first. Yes I fish, and I used to hunt (just can't afford it anymore nor the time since moving here) but without these animals our ecosystems will crash and our food animals will die out. Just be respectful.
  • nice and quite
  • This place is amazing! It has great camping, fishing, and even archery and shooting ranges! There are plenty of parks as well so it's great for anyone of any age!
  • Has a good campground. The host was very nice. The bathrooms are different and there's trails and the river right there
  • Nice, spacious, quiet park, in the trees. However, spaces are more grass than gravel. Take that into consideration if the grass is wet or tends to be muddy. You choose your space, pay for your amenities if you need electricity. Was $18 with electricity, no water, no sewer. Great bike roads, paved through the woods.
