  • Our club were the guests of the Bush-Sawtelle family at their family retreat. The event was absolutely wonderful, filled with good food, good music, good friends and some really good historical chats. 
  • nice park, only problem I have is that when the water park isn't open, there isn't much for small kids to do. The nature center needs a play set or playground. They aren't that expensive. I MTB a lot and we take our grand baby, is nice for him to have things to do with his grand mother. Highly recommend this park set up some play sets for toddlers and small children. If not for this I would have given it a five.
  • Visited on a rainy day and found some of the trails impassable. The park offers some challenging hiking as well as offering access to the Adventure Hiking Trail (AHT). This was a nice way to see the park and add part of a 25 mile rugged hiking trail to your adventure.
  • Was a nice scenic drive bathrooms were about average the attendant on duty when we checked in was kinda goofy, but it all worked out got some great photo's
  • Great place to camp and a wonderful pool to enjoy when it's hot.
  • This is a great place to drive around and look at different types of plants and trees, also the trails are nice.
