This is an excellent place for a picnic, as there are lots of tables available. There is also a covered pavilion and very nice bathrooms - real ones, not portable ones. We like to explore the trails and were delighted to find a new kiosk!...More

It's a nice place to visit if you want to get out for a short walk. It would also be a great place to take your dog for a walk or to visit with small children.

A hidden gem, and a truly beautiful state park. Gorgeous trees and a creek that runs by. Not very many people, quiet and calm.
