  • We put in up the Kite river and pulled out at castle rock. This is a cool little park. Not a place I'd take dogs. Something about lime disease sampling in that area. Great place to bird watch though.  more »
  • No dramatic cliffs, canyons, or waterfalls here. Just sublime beauty and wonderful trails. I have been hiking here for 20 years. This year is the most dense growth I have ever seen. Hiking yesterday, ...  more »
  • Spent some family time here over our Fourth of July vacation. Took our nieces and nephews for a little outdoor time. Grounds were well kept and the view from the deck on top was very nice. We didn't t...  more »
  • It's a nice place to drive through and a great place for a picnic or to take the kids to play (several small playgrounds), but the trails are challenging (many steep hills) and offer little scenery. It's nicely maintained but the trail maps posted throughout are so bare they can be called incorrect (the trails all interconnect but maps do not reflect this) - you can pick up a brochure at the ranger station on your way in, which will have correct maps.Outside of the main park are scattered overlooks with views of the river, but I did not visit them. No camping here.
  • Scenic overlook over the river was beautiful, with a lovely picnic spot. Hiking trails through the park were strenuous enough to be good exercise, but not difficult or exhausting. Scenery was pretty and park was very well kept and not overrun with people. I'm looking forward to visiting again in other seasons. Cross-country skiing would be fabulous in this park if there were at least 4 solid inches of base snow.
  • Always love the view over the river here. About guaranteed you will see eagles soaring above you. Nice picnic area by the river too. Little bit of a hike up the steps to the viewing area, but it's well worth it. Good place to take a couple's picture.
  • Great place to go hiking or have a picnic.. also fishing. Beautiful scenery .
  • Fun place to hang out with the family and your pet is nice cool day no bugs we'll go back again
