Sweet and charming. Swimming at Bath Lake - hiking and biking in nearby Wichita Wildlife Reserve - dinner at the old plantation and live music! What’s not to love?

We have been several times, sometimes taking the grandkids and their friends. The kids love it. We have also been alone or with family. Always a great time in Medicine Park! The kids love swimming, the eating and meeting new friends.
