“Bike the park!”
Reviewed November 22, 2012

We rented bikes near the entrance for just $10, and the bike trails were gorgeous--about 15 miles of them, just fine for the single-speed cruisers we rented. I'd go back in a heartbeat.

A fantastic trail system set up for specific types of trail adventure. Horse trails, biking trails, hiking trails, beautiful pavillions for picnicking. Kayaking and canoeing on the lovely river with lots of wildlife. And experience you don't want to miss!

“A rare gem of a park”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

What a fun place! Our family only had a short time to spend at the park prior to our departure, but what a time we had! We rented bikes ($10 for the day), and got great directions from the wonderful gentleman manning the counter. He showed us exactly where to go to see the alligators, and he was right! We saw 5 gators, a couple turtles, and tons of other wildlife. Such a treat for desert dwellers! We will come back next time we are in town, that is for sure!
