We took a drive today as it was a beautiful July Sunday. The park has many hiking trails and there were many beautiful views. Next time we come we will stay the weekend and go camping.

Family outing kids aged 6 to 18 and adults. We all had a blast in the nearly 2 hour, 5 mile canoe/kayak adventure. We had many first timers who didn't struggle at all.
