“Family Friendly”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

This is a great place to just get outside and play. The historical village is very cool to walk through. They have disc golf, the creek for the kiddies, picnic tables, putt putt golf and playgrounds. The 'Art in th Park' fesitival is very fun too.

“Lovely little park”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2012

I just love visiting this park. Its a perfect spot to cool off on a hot summers day. Bring the family out, pack a cooler and have some fun. While this isnt the best place for swimming, sliding down the rocks can be fun. It does get slippery, so beware. There is sometimes a snack bar open and they do have a cute little outdoors ampitheatre. There is also an heirloom village and covered bridge. I've seen lots of people having family photos taken here too.

“Cool, shady, and mostly free”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2012

There isn't all that much to do at Hurricane Shoals, but that is a plus as well as a minus. For the most part, this park is uncrowded and natural. It's a great place for a walk, a good place for a picnic, and for the adventurous, a good place to ride some rapids on an inner tube, but you'll have to bring your own.

There is a putt-putt course, which is not open all of the time, but it is on weekends, and that is not free, and picnic shelters can be rented for a fee. Mostly, this is a free park, and there are some cool historical buildings, too.
