  • The trails are very nice and the pond is a nice place to kayak. Sometimes it gets overwhelmed by school visits but even then you can hike out a bit and get some peace and quiet. Cheap price for senior...  read more »

  • What a disappointment! We've done quite a few splash pads with our grandkids all over the country and this one is sadly lacking. Yes, it's a brand new pad but whoever the idiot was who designed it rea...  read more »
  • Although the price has gone up the park is still a very nice place to go with its wonderful trails, areas for the kids, and areas to relax. Enjoy many different types of activities here including the splash pad! Well maintained.
  • Great price for a camping site, and you would never know it was there! I'd give it all 5 stars, except the bathroom & shower was a "one person at a time" situation. It wasn't so bad when we went, but it could have been if the camping area we were at was full.
  • Great fun and relaxing. Great exercise on the lake or hiking or biking. Family atmosphere great for a Sunday afternoon!
  • A hidden gym as far as trail running in Columbia. Not quite as diverse as Harbison (elevation wise), but several nice trails both single track and paved. The restrooms are always well kept and clean. Trails are rarely crowded.
  • They would have gotten 5 stars but they went up in price from $1 to $5. Great park though. Lots to do
