  • Great park. Lots of camp sights. A terrific view of the river and passing boats and freighters. No pool, but the beach access is nice.
  • Barges are fun to watch! Park is amazingly kept up!! Workers are all super nice and helpful!!
  • Pretty unimpressive park. Fair amount of camping. Did see a wild turkey and it's babies though.
  • The view is wonderful and so much to do! Close to town, shopping and friendly people.
  • Pretty good trails for walking the dogs or just to get out. There is a trap and archery range, hunting permitted in season, camp grounds etc.
