  • This was by far one of the best walking sites me and my girlfriend have been to! There was a lot to see and the staff was very nice. I really like that they take your information down before walking on any trails, for safety precautions! The gentleman at the gate was informative and very respectful:) Can't wait to come back again!
  • DO NOT GO WHEN HUMID AND HOT. PLENTY OF MOSQITOES. GO PREPARED OR GO BEFORE AND AFTER SPRING/SUMMER.
  • Well maintained trails, friendly people, great facility. Was great weather. What more can one ask for? Kayaking next time....
  • Nice area to hike, but watch out for snakes! Great kayaking spot.
  • The programs are wonderful. One of the best places to walk my dog.
