trails are nice, pretty secluded and quiet. not used to a fee for day use at a park
we go here often for day trail running, biking or just a walk with our kids and dog. we love it. it has nice, clean restrooms with showers. the camp sites all have fire pits and electric outlets. no charge for day use. yes the mosquitoes are worse nearer to river and ants. its nature! put on insect repellent and dont stand where the ants are. trails arent marked well but they are colored(blue for wetter route) if you have good direction you cant get lost.
This is a very quiet park. We camped in their RV section that was completely infested with ants. After they had dinner on us we were able to enjoy the peace. There were RVs on every side of us but seemed to have a 8 pm lights out curfew. We had dinner & tried to check out the trails at dusk and realized there was no directionals so decided to try again after we packed up to leave Sunday. We decided to clean out camp and drive to one of the trails; parked in a parking lot then to the back of the truck to grab our gear & got ate up with ants again. This place is heavily infested & the ants are not happy we're here. We like dirt trails best so we would veer off the paved only to find that it was another feeder trail to the paved trail or a rediculiously winded trail that seemed to lead to no where but a lot of swamp to dodge. Looked great for a four wheeler but not a hiker. Since this park boast the name of the river; we expected nice views of the river but had none. One view is a drop off only showing a distance of 50 ft & another we found by chance wasn't great either, too much growth. Needless to say, they need to exterminate, but up signage & maintain their trails.
Very nice and quiet park. The walking trail is moderately easy and well maintained with plenty of places to sit and enjoy the scenery. Nature trails feed off of the walking trail but are not marked well. Park has very nice camping facilities with reasonable rates.
Paved and dirt trails. Nice elevation changes without being too tricky. The facility is great, but would like to see the trails better marked. We just basically "adventure" when we go. Haven't gotten lost yet! Our dogs adore walking there.
Nice scenery with a good bit of variety (open areas, pond, river, thick wood). Most of the path has a wide-paved path. This time of year, there were far too many mosquitoes, especially the mile or so between the swampy area and the river. We had to jog through there and still came out itching all over.
The river is wide, clear and shallow, filled with frogs. We saw deer, squirrels and heard all kinds of birds. This would be an awesome place to hang out and explore for a few days in the spring or fall.
One downside, for just a quick hike, it was hard to know where to go. There are paths zigging around everywhere without any signs. The info center was very helpful and provided a map, but the map didn't seem to match the path very closely at all.
