It's a nice place to go bike riding, walking and general exercise. You can fish and its a good place to just walk around.

I have mixed feeling about this Park. We visited in mid-August, everything above the water and wetlands was dry a uninviting. Maybe this would be better in the spring and might be a good place to camp then. The parking lot at the end of...More

This is my favorite place to bike ride. It's a round trip of about five miles and has restrooms and numerous drinking fountains. Much of it has been repaved recently so the ride is smooth. Lots of runners and walkers (with and without dogs)

We have always enjoyed our walks through this park. It has really great views. Beware of the dog poop. Many of the dog owners do not pick up after their dogs

The park does have a small entry fee. Others have already written about the nice features of this park/recreation area regarding walking and biking. There are 2-3 picnic areas toward the far end of the paved road. Restrooms are near the picnic areas. The botanical...More

Since paving allege potholes in the state park, its become more enjoyable to run, walk, and ride a bike. It can get humid at times, so you'd better do an early morning workout or an evening workout to enjoy the cool breeze during your workouts.

Even on a leash, some dogs are aggressive and will nip or outright bite. I was bitten in Alsea area of Oregon some years back and required stitches. The owner denied that the dog bit me and when confronted with a bleeding... More
