The mountain bike trails are well kept, the scenery is awesome. It was a very relaxing, serene, and enjoyable trip. I enjoyed biking along the falling leaves and crisp fresh air.

We attended a 10 km volkswalk with about 40 others. There were two 5km loops available. These perambulated the many lakes there. Trails with natural surfaces were clear and easily walkable. Strollers or wagons would have a bumpy ride. They have camping spaces for vehicles...More

Love this park! 3 different lakes, a river, and campsites. Lots of hiking and biking trails! Shady trees everywhere. Enjoy the peace, or rent a kayak at the beach!

We stayed two nights with our toddler in May 2016 and had a great time. Clean restrooms. Would be nice if the playground had more options for young children- it's very much designed for older kids. Even the swings were all really high.
