  • Thoroughly enjoyed the Nicandri Nature Center. Very dedicated and informative staff. Fun trails through the woods and lots of planned activities.
  • Not a good experience at all. Sites were small, uneven, and mud pits. That being said it was a very rainy summer. No excuse for the small uneven lots though. Hardly no phone reception for AT&T or Verizon. You have to drive half way out of the park to get signal.
  • I found my stay at cabin 5 for a week quite nice.isaw deers turkeys. The scenery was gorgeous. In the fall water level was down so fishing from shore was tough. Weather was great for a bonfire. I had a great stay with friends and the cabin was nice.cozy
  • New educational museum that all ages will enjoy. Very well organized.
  • My daughters and I enjoyed our visit here. Th e nature center is beautiful. Nice trails too.
