  • Really enjoyable outing! A great place to have a BBQ /picnic. The floating canyon is great for young children. Adults have slightly less fun as there are a couple points where people heavier than children get hung up. There are two sandy areas to set up and picnic tables everywhere. A large playground and a large grassy area to throw a football, kick a soccer ball, throw some discs. Tubes are $5 each. There is a concession there too selling cool treats. Just be slightly cautious as the final drop is fun but there is a right turn at the bottom of the canyon that actually isn't banked. You run I to a wall and then bounce into the pond. This could be an accident waiting to happen. There are also some beautiful trails to walk through along both the river and through the forest.
  • Cool free And fun. Bring your own tube or rent 1 for 5 bucks. Apparently don't forget photo id if you want to rent. Reasonable washrooms and lots of picnic tables and a big playground
