  • Pay to drive a 2 mile dirt road. A trail or two if you care to walk. At the end of the road you have to turn around and go back the way you came because the gate is closed.  more »

  • There were no trail maps to navigate the park. A paved road in would be great. The park was clean and trails were groomed. It would have been nice to have known what the numbers marked on the trail meant.
  • We camp here with the my sons boy scout troop. A good place to camp.
  • This is a great river to fish on . Today one after another Being pulled in . Thats just today . Day before yesterday went out for a couple if hours and caught a red drum about 30 lbs. That was the big prize of the day. Besides a couple of other fish as well. That is my husband who did the fishing, I just do the reading and the relaxing. And of course the wowing .
  • Nice looking forest. When you drive by it enough it feels as though it's never ending.
  • Beautiful scenery, extremely quiet some long trails and few short ones.
