They allowed us to drive through the park. It is very beautiful. They have a little bit to offer for all outdoor adventurers. Canoes, camping, fishing, cabins and more. I would love to stay at this beautiful place.

This is a very nice park but several of the camp sites lack much flat ground. We enjoyed the trails, everything is kept clean, and the park rangers were helpful with information about the surrounding area.

Especially do not leave your children unattended. Check with park rangers as well. I personally saw Aligator in the lake. The park is not the most beautiful. The playground, some picnic benches and toilets need renovation

We hiked the open trails, nice lake for fishing and swimming. The grocery/gift shop is close Tuesdays and Wednesdays so plan accordingly. You can rent kayaks or canoes (if the grocery shop is open), lots of picnic tables and camping spaces.

Sure you will find a grill but not sure if it will be clean enough to cook a steak on it!

Never trust beasts, no matter where they are. Ask the park ranger's supervisor how many accidents they have per year.
