This park is awesome, they have so many different activities. From kayaking to hiking. You can have parties and get togethers there. I definitely reccommend this for families. P.S. checkout the lights during Christmas Time.

Nature and history lovers dream. Nice trails with some history mixed through the trails. They have a discovery center for the young and old. They are starting to set up the Christmas lights which look amazing.

Cool trails running through the woods but extremely too many snakes not enjoyable for the family.... some of the other areas of the park you're afraid to do anything without getting in trouble.
