  • Nice park overall. Has rentable boats and a clear path around the pond for a nature walk. Camp ground may not be easy navigation for large rigs. Not sure I would be able to get my 31ft around there.
  • There are a couple of decent ~1 mile trails and a good-sized pond. The playground is nice.
  • Really nice park with a lot of history. Make sure to check out the museum and trails!
  • I liked the little school house. And the nature trails.
  • I guess I should have read more about the park before driving here. I expected more hiking. Shouldn't be an entry fee for the park, just for their historic attractions, which I didn't care for. It's a good place for either a class field trip or retired folk I suppose.
