Great park yo walk or ride. A lot of trails to follow. Bring your binoculars with you especially if your a bird watcher all types. Very relaxing place to visit. Open Dusk till Dawn. Would recommend.

Great place to bike. Wonderful for photography. If I had had the time, I could have walked all the way to the water, but I had less than an hour to spend there. What scenery I did see was gorgeous & photogenic. I intend to return when I have at least 2-3 hours to spend there.

There is plenty to do at Cattus Island County Park. It's nice to walk all around. There is a playground area that our Granddaughter loved as well as the hike we all did.

So many memories from growing up and being able to share them with my children. Fun interactive displays that the children can learn and daily classes that focus on different animals in their displays. My son while three fondly named it the "owl House"

We took advantage of a dinner and cruise recently. Inexpensive pontoon ride to a local restaurant on the river. Great time and worth it just for the scenery.

Great place to escape from the ordinary. Very natural setting and absolutely beautiful. Only drawback is the bugs are aggressive and give a nasty bite. Wear protection

Cattus Island is a great place for hiking; Be sure to wear your bug spray because the bugs are out even in the daytime! Some of the trails are a bit overgrown with thin willowy leaves that brush against your body and will cause itching for days. (You can easily avoid these trails, there are so many others) However, it... More
