  • Very sarcastic and rude people in the ranger station. Its sad such a beautiful park has people like that working here.
  • A great playground and picnic area for the family. However, from a historical standpoint I was expecting more. The only remaining standing fort structure is a post composed of maybe fifteen posts; it seems to resemble a wall. We arrived at 10 on a Saturday and we're there for about an hour and a half.
  • Beautiful! We will definitely be back, the park is just lovely!
  • Great hiking trails. Nice place to take the family.
  • Very calm and relaxing park, however next door is a speedway racetrack. Try to plan your trip when there's no tournament going on.
