“Nice park for it's location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 1, 2013

It is better in the winter and spring. Gets a bit hot and dry in the summer and there is not much shade. There is not a lot a view to the pond because the reeds block it. The camp site is ok, a few nice spots. It is small and is quite full year round so book ahead.
There are nicer campgrounds in the local mountains but this one is convenient. Particularly if you are a poor planner and need to run to the store.

“RV Camping”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 27, 2013

This is a beautiful place to camp because it's secluded amongst trees 2 lakes. You would never know you are still in a populated area. We enjoy it for it's close proximity to our home. There is electricity and water but lacking sewage to the sites.

“Fun trails for dirt bikes, kinda gross water & scenery though”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 25, 2012

It's fun riding dirt bikes on these trails but there's gross stuff on the trails so I can't recommend it for a romantic walk although it's fine for a hike with the wife. Not a lot of photo ops and, as with any place with standing water, there will be mosquitoes in summer but they're not bad if you keep moving.

“Enjoy quiet nature along a busy highway”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2012

This park is an oasis in an area that is becoming more and more crowded. It's a beautiful little park where you can walk under lots of trees and see many different kinds of birds. There is camping here, too. Has a few trails to get a good walking workout.

“It's a good place to get exercise”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 9, 2012

you won't see very much wildlife, but you have access to a network of well-maintained trails for walking, running, biking, or horseback riding that weave through various aspects of this unique desert marshland. camping is available too, RVs welcome, although I've never done it.
