We came on a road trip break. Could have spent more time, but would say an hour is a minimum to gain an appreciation of the settling. True, the free museum is small, but also very good. The 18-minute film played on request is very worthwhile, even vital, to understand the historic area. Beautiful view of the mounds, Duck River and Little Duck River. Well-marked trails with storyboards. Beautiful place. There are also playground and campgrounds.

I stopped here for a quick visit and decided to do the full Enclosure Trail Loop. There were only a couple other visitors so the trail was quiet. There are plenty of places to get great shots, just sit and think or enjoy nature. The entire trail has informative boards that give you a look in to the history of the area. The trail is easy to follow and doesn't require a lot of physical ability.

We have had this on our bucket list for awhile, and it didn’t disappoint. There are numerous beautiful hikes, all fairly easy. We enjoyed the waterfalls and had fun rock hopping. Bring water shoes because you can swim and play in the water. Definitely, don’t miss this.

All the park rangers looking over this park are wonderful. They even have a tiny museum with activities for children. Even if you’re not a child enjoy putting yourself under the waterfall.

Had a day to explore while moving my son to Nashville and found this gem on a trail app. For starters, yes, get there early. I arrived at 10 am on 4th of July, snagging the last parking spot. Trail head is near the museum. If you plan on hitting the river and playing in the waterfalls, bring water shoes. Pack a lunch and plan to spend a lot of time. I went alone and did not swim, but was still there for 2.5 hours. Trails for all levels! I hiked a combination of easy to hard. Bonus... bathrooms in the museum were clean!
