  • Highly maintained, walk by the river and enjoy the wildlife. The bison and elk are fenced, but watching them was a treat. Magpies sitting on the bison was enjoyable.

  • Great place for everyone, including children and dogs (on leash). Love this place and highly recommend!
  • Quick pit stop for us, and we enjoyed looking at everything in the welcome area. It was cool that there were animals to look at without having to venture too far from the parking lot.
  • Clean and family friendly park. Was made to be able to do a wide variety of things, e.g., walking, biking, picnicking, fishing, animal watching, etc. Great park.
  • This park is a wonderful rest stop for anyone traveling on I-80. We always stop whether we need to or not. The rest rooms are clean. There is a play area for the children, paths to walk and interesting info about the area.
  • Bathrooms were dirty, but the view here was amazing. Nice place to stop and take a break.
