  • I went camping with some friends here. We rented lots 13 & 14 for a group of 6 and there was so much room we didn't even use the second campsite. We were able to park right on the campsite. There was a space for a fire outside and there was a 3 sided stone lean-to that had a place at waist level, with a chimney to cook inside, so even if it rained we wouldn't need to worry about cooking or getting wet. There were no grates for the fire, so we used a cast iron skillet right on it which worked well. The grass was mainly cut. It was grown in about a few inches, but you can tell they have good upkeep. All the lawns and shared areas are very well done and neat! There was an option for bathrooms. Either 6 Porta-potties within a minute walk or commercial bathrooms with lights, and showers which were a 5 minute walk. The buildings with Bathrooms and Showers were very clean! We walked the small maybe 100' flower garden, which was disappointing (only saw 3 signs describing plants) but a nice little 5 minutes walk over a tiny bridge and small stream.
  • Great place to wander. Nice nature center/museum. Fun activities for kids. Aviary. Good place to get out. Campgrounds fill up quickly and can only reserve in person!
  • One of my favorite parks in the area. Lots of well-maintained trails through interesting terrain. Not too crowded either.
  • Awsome hiking and great place to be with nature
  • Great hiking trails and views. Must visit if you love nature.
