  • Wonderful park right here in our hometown! Mountain biking, hiking, and kayaking all in one place. The concession stand is a great place for an after activity ice cream or snack! Can't wait for it to be nice out so we can get out again!
  • I've been going to the park For many many years! The roads aren't what they used to be but the concession stand has improved a lot along with the rentals it's pretty close to being like it was when I was a kid!! Check it out!! Can't wait for the Chicago dogs if been hearing about! supposed to be the best!!...
  • Great park with a ton of trails (both paved and dirt). You can hike, bike, ride your horse, and cross country ski. They also have camping that is amazing, a doggy swimming area, playgrounds, covered picnic areas, and boating on the lake. Tons of fun!
  • Beautiful clean park. Wonderful trails, lots of history, there used to be a town named Harlem in the 16th century, the old railroad used to run thru there. They flooded the town out after everyone left, but nobody knows why all the people just up and left one day. Do not get any water in your mouth if you go to the beach, it's toxic, no joke it has toxins from an old farm they say. So not a place to swim, but the rest is great!
  • While I have not camped or swam here, I can say that this park is pretty amazing. Dogs are welcome with you on the trails and there is even dog specific areas if you prefer. There are areas to cook out and picnic, there is a concession area as well. Hiking, for me, is the highlight. The trails aren't difficult and you can easily spend hours wandering around. There are marked trails for biking too. A nice place so close to home.
