  • I feel that any park that offers handicap accessible trails deserves 5 stars for being available to anyone looking to enjoy nature. The views of the water are gorgeous and the park and trails are taken care of. There are plenty of areas for picnics or just sitting and relaxing.
  • This is a great little park to visit, but there's not much to do. If you're not REALLY into osprey watching. The osprey island is definitely the highlight of the visit. If you're in the area and bored, it may be worth a trip.
  • Nice state park. They had a couple park guides out with a scope to point out the osprey that were nesting nearby. Well-maintained. Wasn't too busy when we went.
  • Beautiful relaxed environment. So quiet, clean air and pretty view. Good for pictures or exercise. Inspirational if you draw of paint or want just enjoy nature!
  • Nice park for an easy hike. We did the harakeesat trail which was the longest but only took about 1.5 hours.
