I wish we'd had time for a longer visit to explore this site. We were in the forested/picnic area to view the eclipse. Nice staff. Clean bathroom facilities.

This is a wonderful part to visit. Great place to take a walk and to view the river and watch river traffic. Many deer so if you go in the spring take your camera for the fawns.
