“Great park, well maintained”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 17, 2013

I have visited Maclay Gardens State Park numerous times to use their mountain bike facilites. I recently visited and had lunch there with some friends. I found the staff to be very helpful and informative about the park and its history. The park and it's trails can be confusing at times if there is no map availiabe. Luckily a park ranger (I cant remember his name) appeared shortly after I found myself slightly lost and produced a laminated map for me to use during my visit. I found this perk of the park to be very helpful.

Beuatiful Garden trails , old hunting lodge overlooking lake. If you like to walk this is a great experience. Take a lunch and eat down by the lake.

“Spring time is beautiful here.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 22, 2013

This is a great place to visit with the family. Hiking and biking trails and when it warms up--good swimming. We went this time for a picnic and to see the azaleas. They were beautiful!

“Nice for a stroll”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 18, 2013

The camellias make a great show in winter months and in spring the azaleas are lovely. The gardens have water features as well and many other plants to admire.
