  • Fabulous place. The park is kept so clean and the landscape is so beautiful. You can fish (if you meet all requirements), you can camp, and hike. There are volleyball sand pits, and a play area. Take quarters to buy fish food to feed the fish. In the spring, a hillside of daffodils bloom. It's a quiet sanctuary brought to you by nature and the James family. GO see this place, you'll be happy you did and you'll want to return.
  • We got there at about 430pm and there was no entrance fee since they close at 5pm (winter hours). It was a spur of the moment kind of trip but we couldn't have timed it better.. the sunset was gorgeous! We walked around the trout hatchery and the spring area, then over to the furnaces. We had just enough time for that before they closed. Wish we could've have seen more but that's what we get for showing up so late. A trip during the day is definitely in the future! We also saw lots and lots of deer! Awesome place.
  • Beautiful park! Unfortunately my first trip there today was a spur of the moment thing and I didn't have enough time to explore. Can't wait for another nice day to go back and get more pictures of the trout and waterfalls!
  • Sharp, hard right 180° turn to go into Rocky uneven sites. Very private as we were only ones there. Only spent one nite. Not again thou.
  • Was a great day. Loved the personnel that worked there. They were very helpful and kind. Thanks!
