An elevated boardwalk along Turkey Creek. Areas to put in to swim or raft in the warmer weather. A pavilion at the entrance of the park to picnic at. Good parking. No cost to enjoy the park.

Definitely a must see location, given the area. We came down from Wisconsin and opted for a more laid back spring break experience.

Well maintained boardwalk through the trees. Safe, interesting place for a walk. Note the closing time, you need to finish up before that time. We got through a little later but they were very nice about it. Now that we know we won't inconvenience them...More
