We go kayaking and rubbing on the Rainbow several times a year. KP Hole is a great place to launch from. Gets very crowded in the summer months. Parking is limited, and closes when full.

Recently we walked through the park with a professional photographer taking photos of our granddaughter on her 16th birthday. It is beautiful, quiet and the perfect place to spend the day, get a little exercise and enjoy.
