They have great camping...including two cabins that can be rented. Located right by city limits. In winter they rent cross country skis and snowshoes. They have groomed trails. In summer they have a sand bottomed chlorine/filtered pool. Has handicapped access to water.

It's amazing to have this beautiful park adjoining our city! I took a hike on one of the many trails that wind through the woods and along the river. It's so peaceful out there! And in summer the lake-like pool is a great place to...More
