Absolutely loved this park. We had a great family day here. The trails were large and along the water and were absolutely beautiful. On a negative note this time of year the banana spiders are EVERYWHERE!! THEY ARE CREEPY! but besides dodging them every 20 seconds, overall I can't wait to go back!!!!
Easy trail, this trail is good for families with small children as it is not very long but has a lot to see. Marshes, majestic trees, bugs, wild life, and a lake to sit by and catch a few minutes of relaxation. I was the only one on the trails so no crowds. I did hear road noise for a while from the highway, but as I moved further in, that became less noticeable.
This is a great place for families, to picnic or to spend time hiking the trails. I hiked about a total of three miles, it was fairly easy, with some elevation for that extra cardio. Very majestic trees, marshes, and a lake gave it a lot of diversity. I veered off to several other trails to make my time there last longer as each trail is not very long. I was also greeted with mosquitos, so if you are camping, take along a repellant. The trails can be used for biking, you don't really need a mountain bike for this as the trails are hard packed.
Took our kids and dog to camp and walked/hiked the trails. They're easy and wide, very scenic and pleasant. We also took a canoe out and paddled approximately a 3 mile loop around the island trail, just watch out for branches if you're sitting in the front and don't steer well. Really enjoyed ourselves!!

If you're looking for a fast, lake view, this is it. There are two sides of the park, and we hiked hen house first. The other side is the next stop. Trails here are much wider and bridges are well kept compared to saw mill hike.
