I stopped in to see what I have been driving by for years. I never knew there is so much stuff to see. I found out that they have camping spots and a planetarium and train. I will return and go camping in the fall.

If you love nature, history and science you will enjoy this nature preserve. Bring a picnic, lots of fun for small children. We saw a blue heron and a deer on the drive in to the park.

Great park for children. There is a nice campground within the Nature Park. There is a small gift shop. It would be a great break for travelers or someone camping.

This place has limited live creatures to view (snakes, lizards, etc), but is interesting and clean, well kept. The science building offers some more interesting exhibits and items and the grounds are well groomed....(playground for kids).

This is one of the biggest catfish I've seen in person. This gentleman has caught the fish when the water level was high. Bring a stiff rod because your ultra lite rod might not be enough.
