Beautiful park with great camps

One of my favorite parks in the area. Beautiful walking paths, great picnic areas, and the centers are nice for special events.

What a light show, drove through and took a ride on the shuttle, got a hot chocolate. Everyone around us, including us, were enjoying the last night of 2016 with the light show, Lasar show!! Beautiful!!!

Great place to visit. Nice large dog park too but will need to show proof of shots and neuter. Been several times but this trip we rented bikes and rode the trails. Have also been for birthday parties, wedding, river tubing, and just walking the trails.

Took the grand kids here back during the summer and they spent hours at the splash pad and playground. My enjoyment came from watching them enjoy themselves.

While this isn't the most beautiful park, it excels at offering local residents lots to do. There are trails, fishing, tubing, a new playground, a water park, eco tours and bird watching, classes of all kinds, an outdoor stage for plays and music and much more. The main walking trail is paved and quite wide. It's good for strollers and... More

Had a business class at the River Center. This is a great place to have an event or meeting as the facility is modern, comfortable, and the amenities are top-notch. I highly recommend this place for your company or organization to hold a meeting or class.

The water park is a nice place for smaller kids. They provide a lifeguard. The only problem is that it is so nice it gets packed quickly and that is dangerous for the smaller kids. Lots of kids running also causes danger, especially for the smaller ones. Get there when they open and you will get the best hour of... More
