Not just a county park, you will love to explore this forest wonderland by car, bike or on foot. The Nature Museum is very educational and interesting for kids of all ages.

We were there for the "Burgers and Fun" to listen to the Wright Brothers! It was a beautiful park - we just were there for the event and did not camp or drive around at all.
