This park is INCREDIBLE. However, I was pushing someone in a wheelchair and it is very hilly/uneven pavement. For anyone on foot that is in decent shape its perfect though!

Crystal clear river! 4 hour tube ride was too long for us. Next time we will go on the 2 hour ride and try the Kayaks. With the Kayaks you have more freedom to discover areas you can’t get to with the tubes.

One of the best rivers I have ever visited, clean, sweet smelling and full of wild life. Great place to kayak, snorkel and bird watch.

Beautiful setting, especially the springs area (blue/green water + riverbank setting). Took the kids here for lunch (we brought food with us and had a hike / lunch on the trail). They have a few small waterfalls. Saw a small group of teens swimming, but...More
