  • The park was clean and had excellent signage. The Nature Learning Center is fantastic and incredibly educational. Ranger Allen was a pleasure to talk to, and gave us insight about the area and things to do with a young infant. Parking is only $2.00. Highly recommended.
  • The tide was low so we did have to walk the kayaks probably a half a mile. Just check the tires before you go. It's a very nice park but a tight canoe launch.
  • What a great park to take a walk and see animals in their natural habitat. The nature center is great and they offer canoes and kayaks for rent. Its certainly worth the $2 entrance fee.
  • “Gem of a park” We love to get out and explore the parks in our area and found this one last year. It is similar to all the other parks in vegetation and natural landscape but is quiet and serene. We'll be back.
  • You can rent a canoe or boat for a reasonably fee. Very nice!
