This is someplace we could always take our children and guarantee to enjoy. It affordable and has lots to pick. We usually take a picnic, play volleyball, hike, rent paddle boats and sail boats. Easy access off the interstate, very clean.

You MUST visit at duck, the woods come alive with wildlife. The deer are adorable. The Ornithology Center is an absolute must. The staff is very knowledgeable about local flora and fauna and the view is awesome.

Hiking paths open all year round, plus summer water activities. Safe, beautiful and inexpensive ($5/6 per car, depending on residency).
