This is a nice park and is the closest state park to our home. We just bought the annual park pass ("Naturally Yours Passport") and so will probably visit many more times over the coming year to see the seasons change in the park.

I like this park with its many hiking trails - well maintained and usually not crowded, especially off season or during the week. Trails are well marked and true to the online maps you can print ahead of time.
