First off..this is a really nice Park. It has really interesting geography and landscape. Very large, very beautiful (especially by the water).
The park is well suited for just about every activity. I only have one problem with it. I like to hike and geocache. The trails are poorly improved (most not much than faint foot paths). Then tend to switch back in open fields. There is not much shade and can be very exposed and hot. It seems like most trails are through low scrub areas with not much shade.
The trails would be great for a bike...but for hikers they are pretty spartan.
I have never camped here but I found no place for Tent camping that was not very exposed to the road noise and the nearby railroad. There is no place to camp away from all that.
The Nature Center is really interesting btw. Very interesting for grade school age kids. Halloween time they always have a demonstration Fire as they burn away the dead forest material. The Fire department lets kids ride on the Fire trucks and there are lots of activities.
There is a camp store with food and sundries for park guests. Small groceries store essentially.
