  • So much fun!!! The beach is great for people who like archaeology and geology or even just for those who want a new adventure. There are a variety of trails of different levels of difficulty and all are great for bringing dogs.
  • This state park is fantastic! Great place to take the dogs for a quiet walk. Wonderful views of the river. The paths were well-kept and clearly marked. Just a short hike takes you to a small, but beautiful beach, covered with driftwood and shells, which great for taking pictures. This place was truly a hidden gem! We will definitely be back!
  • We had a great time at the fossil beach. If you are interested in geology or want a neat experience digging around looking at fossils with the kids this is very cool.
  • This is a beautiful park near the water. Some nice trails that are good for hiking and biking. Several horse trails also.
  • Great hiking trails! The signs by the historical sites need to be replaced. Fossil Beach was an unexpected find. Very enjoyable park!
