Here you can walk around the beautiful state park, feed fish, they have BBQ pits, pavillions, playgrounds for the kids and ball courts. Wonderful place to spend the day or even for a lunch time picnic.

This place has such a relaxed feeling to it that you forget outer world and just embrace the beauty of nature. They also have a museum showing how life was during the 1800s in the area.

We visited today, 6/19/17, and the park was not crowded. It was very peaceful watching the fish and walking to the spring. Enjoyed watching the fishermen and the sparkling water.
