Over all it's a nice place to go for a good long walk. Some of the trails need a little maintenance, though none of the posted trails are in that bad a shape. It is good for photos of nature in general specific animals I did not see any when I went. Did hear a lot of birds of you like just listening to nature. There is a store on sight, looked more like a gift shop. I did not go in so I can not confirm.

Awesome place to see some wildlife and go for a walk in the woods or sit by the lake. There were several geese who let us join them around the lake. The walk through the woods was rather scenic and had a lot of trail options.

We found this place by surprise. The gentleman working in the welcome center was extremely helpful and eager to offer information. We didnt get a chance to hike, as it was late in the day but well definitely be back. I'm looking forward to it.

Small but pretty. All of the main trails are well maintained but some of the smaller ones aren't. Not that much to see if you're a fan of hiking.

Great place for a walk. Lots of trails and play space for kids. My kid likes to throw rocks into water and down sewer grates so this place is amazing. I can let him go and get 8 hours of piece while he slowly fills the lake with rocks.
