Great place to go for a day of fun in the sun. Make sure you check the weather the day before and of, because you will not get your money back from the park, or equipment rental business. Mountain bike course is almost always kept well. I have been riding those trails for around 10 years now, and i still find new stuff. Great area to kayak and see nature. All in all a great park.

Nice little cabin. If you like a concrete path to the bath, get cabin#1. However you will be RIGHT next to the FWC officer and campground host. Road to the camp ground is full of muddy pot holes.

The natural elements of this park like the trees, the breeze, the river are amazing. The human elements of this park are horrible due to incompetent management and indifferent employees. For example, the weekend traffic entering the park is horrible. It takes an average of 30 minutes to reach the ranger booth. This is glaring evidence that the management does not understand how to meet the needs of the thousands of weekend patrons. They could open the second ranger booth and alleviate the boiling frustration from the tax payers in line.

This place is great! About $5 entry and you don't need any of your own stuff, but it would be a good idea to bring a water bottle. The park is obviously very warm and you can rent bikes, canoes, kayaks or simply walk around and take in the views. The only reason it's not 5 star is because there could be more signs pointing things out, otherwise, it's amazing!

The nature aspect of the park is great, but management seems to be very poor. Took the bike trails there and signage was a major issue, there were hardly enough signs to indicate the different types of trails or directions to get around. The map provided at the entrance booth for the bike trails also needed some updates/improvement. For having to pay an entrance fee and the busy traffic they get every weekend, that's pretty ridiculous.
