  • A great place to hold an event, felt like we were out away from the city.
  • What a great environment to spend a whole day. I inexpensive for a family outing, even have a dog park fenced in and very large.
  • I've been for several work meetings and wedding or two. This is a very nice venue from my experience. Several partitioned rooms allow for flexibility in terms of size. There's a nice patio out back. I've never paid the bills so unfortunately I cannot speak to the cost aspect. Overall a really nice place to host a get together.
  • Beautiful cool water with an easy access boat ramp. Had a great time boating and fishing the river.
  • I have been going to trainings in one of the parks buildings this year. The space is great. Unfortunately, the internet never works. I had 12 days of training at this location this year. I hope they can work out this issue before next years trainings begin.
