the trails are nicely maintained and it's a beautiful area, but the trails are very poorly labeled!

There is good prairie hiking here with woodland and riverside trails too. Backpack-in camp would be nice though I have only done drive-in camping here. My favorite use of the park has been to rent horses and go for rides in the park (though the stable I used to do this with appears to only board horses now).

Very well maintained, if you are looking for prairie or hardwood forest hiking, then this is a great place.
