  • Off the beaten path but so worth it!! The drive is beautiful, road even nice & smooth. Plenty of birds flying over head. Nice trails. Picnic tables by the water. Very enjoyable.
  • Great place to take family and yourself for a walk. The observation tower is great to see. It also wheelchair accessible ( I recommend first calling if it's operation).
  • Great relaxing area to camp and hike. Very peaceful and has reconstructed villages and buildings. Great staff at the visitor center, that are extremely knowledgeable of local plants and animals. Really good place to get away, and relax.
  • Absolutely lovely area with quite a fascinating tour of historical buildings. One should not miss the paddle boat ride on the river!
  • Great park, I have visited many times with my family and my students. The staff is wonderful and knowledgeable. The rural life museum is very cool to see. Nice trails for walking and biking.
