This is a nice park to visit. It is great for cyclists. I took several rides around the park and had an awesome post-ride swim in one of the two lakes. The water is deep, cool, and clean.

The park is easily accessible from the interstate, and offers plenty of parking. The visitor's center is nice, with exhibits and clean restrooms. There is also a gift shop for souvenirs. The window feeders were nice, and attracted evening grosbeaks.

Although the trees were not as large as we expected, it was a nice walk through the different parts of the woods. The logging camp was very interesting. We would like to come back when they are running the steam sawmill.
