We took our dog here and walked a few trails. There is a cafe over looking a lake with a nice sitting area outside. The only animals we saw were two swans on the lake. It's very pretty but not very big. Free parking and entry.

Ravnedalen is really beautiful, especially in summertime. I think it's a very good place to have a picnic, too. When you climb up you also get a great view of Kristiansand.
