We visited here a couple of days after a strong storm (hurricane remnants) had moved through. This blew down a lot of trees and knocked power out to the park. Hence some things were closed... more »
Wonderful park! They had a great playground but we went for their boat rentals.you can rent a paddle notary, kayak, or a canoe for only $5/hour. Nice little lake. We really enjoyed the boats and then swimming. It was $5/assault and $3/child to get into the park but the lady let us know if we wanted to buy a park passport for $50 it gives you unlimited visits to 40 national parksin the state for a year from the day you purchase it. Good for your vehicle of people and that your entrance fee from that day would count toward the price if you buy the passport. The place was clean, beautiful and peaceful. My family and I had a great time and will be going back.
Love to come here! Many different trails with varying difficulty and length, so many places to have a picnic. Great place to visit with kids, the lake trail is easy and not too long for little legs. Nice playground too.
