  • I wish I had taken pics! Coming from a very outdoorsy family that travels, this is by far the most beautiful public park we've ever seen. There is plenty of green space to play on, as well as a wide, shallow, and clear river THAT YOU CAN SWIM AND TUBE IN FOR FREE (as long as you bring your own, if not you can rent them near by.) The current is strong enough to float in tubes, but gentle enough for my small children. There are also tables/pavilions with grills, making it perfect for parties or just a day on the river.

  • We picnic here every time we're in the area and go wading in the creek here. Joy is just everywhere...kids and adults wading and swimming, families picnicking and playing in the water, a real sense of community and peace here. A must-visit when you're in the area:)

  • Great place to have a picnic and enjoy the mountains by a cold mountain stream. Worth the drive off the main road. Great for kids of all ages.

  • This is a great place to get outside with your family. It's normally crowded but there's good reason for that. The water is great if you've got small kids because it's just deep enough for them to play in but not deep enough to be dangerous.

  • The river is so relaxing the bamboo forest is so nice sometimes you luck up and the elk are here
