  • Well maintained trails with access to the creek for a summer cool down or exploring for crayfish. Lots of trail options.  more »
  • Highs - adequate parking, clean bathrooms, trails fairly well maintained. Lows - the map sucks and every trail seems to be marked the red trail. Also I can’t say that there is anything...  more »

  • Beautiful park, clean, quiet. It can be expansive if you want it to, it can secluded if you want it to. Many trails to hike on, multiple start and end points. You can walk, hike, run, bike, swim, fish. Educational center is incredible, informative, great classes to take to learn about local flora and fauna. Great place to restore mental and physical health. Can't recommend enough.
  • I'm an outdoorsy type of person, so as it is with most state parks, I'm right at home here. The park is well maintained and has most amenities you would expect to find in a state park, including clean bathrooms, picnic areas, environmental education center, etc. Visit their website for a complete list. The walking/hiking trails are suited well for most types of people and are well-maintained ... nothing technical or difficult about the trails. It's a very scenic area with lots of photo ops as you go. The only drawback that I've ever come across, which isn't really a problem, is that depending on the time of the year you visit, it can attract a good amount of people wanting to play in the water and beat the heat. That in itself is not a problem so much as sometimes certain crowds can be loud or inconsiderate. Like I said, rarely an issue but it does happen from time to time as it would anywhere you go these days. So all in all it's clean, well kept, and beautiful. Don't hesitate to take the family and have a wonderful day enjoying the outdoors. Keep in mind that with most state parks the hours are from sun up to sun set. Highly recommend visiting.
