This is a huge park! And so scenic. There are miles and miles of beautiful trails. Lots to do year round. From swimming to sledding. Check out the park, it's very unique.

My kids love going here anytime of year. There is a great outdoor playground that is open in warmer weather. It's a big large though and depending on the age of the kids and how many need to be watched, it could be challenging to keep track of the children with only 1 chaperone. In the winter, we've rented snow... More

Excellent place to visit and explore nature year- round! It's a blast to go tubing in the winter or take your dog to the dog park in the summer. There's a lot to do though-out the calendar year!

My husband surprised me with an afternoon of tubing this year for my birthday and boy was it fun! I've been to the park in the summer and fall but never for winter sports and I'm now in love! Staff were very friendly and the sliding lanes were smooth and very safe. What a fun day for couples or families... More

We went tubing as a family as part of our holiday celebration. Our tubers aged from seven years to 70 years old. The hills are fast but drop and then level off so that the speeds are not too excessive. There are lifeguards at the top monitoring the flow down the hill and two magic carpets to bring tubers back... More

Elm Creek has something for everyone, at any season. I am especially fond of the mountain bike trails, hiking trails and paved trails there, but I also love to cross country ski there. They make snow for the downhill slope and have some lighted night trails for both cross country and downhill skiing. However, it can get packed, so I... More

kids had a wonderful fun filled day of playing in a super safe play zone with many other excited and energized kids and families enjoying the overly exspansive play zone with many interactive and various slides climbers and swings just to name a few
