We home a lot and decided to check out this locally. .we had lots of bug spray and it didn't touch the mosquitos. We went in about 100 feet and couldn't take it...and we've done lots of hiking. Left and went somewhere else. Yuck! !

Went there as part of our birding organization's state meeting and this was an organized field trip. Loved how beautiful and clean it was. Enjoyed the birding and wildflowers. Also enjoyed seeing how they maintain it and are making improvements to it, for the people and the wildlife. Hope to visit it again.

I really do not understand why this would be listed as an attraction. It is totally undeveloped and there is no signage to even let people know where it is. It would take a serious student of nature to research and find the site.

The mosquito’s were more than plentiful during the time of our visit but overall is a nice little prairie and swamp area worth visiting at least once. After turning off U.S.... More
