Beautiful scenery— although, a little awkward when ending up in camp sites. Easy to navigate. Saw a decent variety of wildlife when I went in early may.

Nice walk in the woods. Nice changes of scenery and terrain (meadow, forest, lakeside).

I would come back! Campers very friendly, camp site is watched. Didn't see any animals or birds during our hiking. I love the woods.

Live near by so I hike here often. Both woods and prairie. Deer herd is usually around some where. There are also wild turkeys in the park. Nice campgrounds. Lake is good for canoes and kayaks.

Not too bad. Wish it had longer trails. Good for bird watching.
