  • 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.
