  • What a nice state park in a city setting. Some of the sites are really small and do require some maneuvering but it is a great park. The bathrooms are new and well-kept. The Ranger was so helpful upon our late arrival. We were sorry that we were just passing through--we will come back when we can stay a longer period. I am glad that we did not reserve a site online as you might pick a site only to discover that you would not be able to maneuver into it. We have a 18 foot travel trailer. Hats off to the park for their playground for "all"! ❤️
  • My best friend and I uncovered a whole other side to warriors that many people are not aware of. There are several great hiking trails not located in the duck island area. You can access these trails from fall creek road. We made an entire day of it. We started at the Sinking Waters trail located off of moody road I believe. That is a great trail. It has many cool little areas and towards the end of the trail, there is a boardwalk that takes you over the "swamplands". It dumps you out on the golf course. We then Walked the the edge of the golf course until we came to the road that the stables are on. You can then walk down the road and it brings you out there at the beginning of the bridge if you were going toward the actual recreation area. We decided to stop there and eat at a little landing on the side of the lake. It was a perfect location. You can then cross the road at the golf cart crossing and you will see a sign that says "devils backbone 1.1m". This trail is a little more strenuous, but with amazing views. Follow this trail and you will eventually come out at Devils Backbone trail located behind Warriors Falls neighborhood. This is a very enjoyable hike. We made a day of it. I will recommend it to anyone and will also hike this trail again very soon!!
  • Plenty to do for the entire family from playing disc golf on the beautiful wooded course to family fun at the playground or pushing a stroller around Duck Island. Lots of shelters for picnics and areas you can enjoy the lake. If you haven't been, its well worth checking out.
  • Went camping in the overflow campground. Loved how friendly the park rangers were. Bathrooms and showers were always clean and stocked, didn't have any issues. I love the kid's playground as well, very unique and has interesting variety for kids as well as WiFi for parents.
  • It's a close get away campground. They have a playground for special needs children and paddle boating, canoes you can rent at a very reasonable rate, a safe place to walk, fish. They also have shelters for any occasions. I LOVE THIS PLACE!!!!!
