“Wonderfu park!”
Reviewed August 12, 2012

I really love this park. My friend and I spent 7 hours in this park and still didn't cover everything. This park has a lot hiking trails. Make sure you go on the driving tour. This is where all the hiking trails through the woods are located. You really get your exercise!

“Walking across the Mississippi”
Reviewed July 29, 2012

This was an incredible sight; seeing the mighty Mississippi as a small beautiful stream flowing out of the lake. We had a great time crossing on the rocks and playing in the water. We also saw a beaver, a muskrat, and ducks while there. Highly recommend!

“Fun!”
Reviewed July 26, 2012

Walk the river - it's about knee/thigh high. Kids had a blast...and you get to see the gum-rainbow on the bridges that you can only see from the river :)
