“Great Local Park”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2013

I love the variation in activities they have available - they have a few longer walks/hikes, some short ones, a pretty big picnic area for families, lots of fishing areas...

“Nice park on the river”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

Nice park to spend an afternoon, lots to do and has just about everything. A few good trails for hiking or just walk down the easy path next to the river with a few historic markers. Decent pier for fishing, small beach area on the left side of pier (good for dogs to play in), pretty long beach area on the right of the pier (no swimming allowed). Plenty of tables and bbq pits for the cookout with bathrooms conveniently located not too far away. Volleyball court and big playground for the kids. There are a few pavilions for large groups (need reserved way in advance). Plenty of trees for shade, but also plenty of branches on the floor. Park also has a boat launch and camping available. If your looking for a park in the Woodbridge area this is the one to go to.

“Nice state park but pricey parking.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

My husband and I visited this park one afternoon for a picnic with our daughter. It was a bit windy which might have hampered our enjoyment a little. The park itself is nice and clean, good walking paths and a beautiful view of the river. There's a good amount of picnic tables and facilities for children. We were dissapointed that it cost $5.00 to park. I had never visited before so didn't want to risk buying a seson pass. The season pass does work out to be much better value. But I thought a $5.00 fee. Considering it was already the afternoon was a bit steep.

“Just a "nice drive in the park"”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2013

Very nicely kept up Park. Young gentlemen at entrance way was very helpful and gave lots of info before even entering park.

Loads of trails. Picnicking areas to choose from, a "Visitor shopping area", boat parking /l aunch area (Fee) , and a park store I believe it was located at Boat Launch Area. Visitor Center is before you get that far down.

There is NO swimming at this Park! You can wade and sunbathe and it is a nice park but that is a huge drawback for some.

“Great Walking Paths”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013

This park is absolutely beautiful. They have places for fishing, walking picnic areas and they have a small beach. I ride my bike at the park excellent for running, walking your dog and biking., During the summer the park has concerts as well. Just a nice getaway.
