  • This is a very cool park. It's fine to bring your dogs. There are plenty of pokestops, and even a few gyms. Also, keep an eye out for some of Stafford's rocks! Great place to take a few family photos as well.
  • Super cool to learn the history of our country. Really good walk and awesome to be in nature like that.
  • Bass and Small mouth, sometimes a striper. Nice hike with local history of Aquia.
  • Great family friendly location. Pets are also welcome.
