Very shady & quiet. R v spots for day use. Clean grounds & river is close. Some hiking trails. I have seen some fishing. Easy to drive in. Not far from a major town if you need ice or something you forgot.

This is a great location for a wonderful nature walk around whole park, through heavy woods, then right to the waters edge, very relaxing.

Great place to take the dogs for a run. This park is vast, with many achres of space. The river has a boat ramp, and the ponds are full of life. Picnic tables scattered about. Love this park

Good place to launch a kayak, take a short hike or play with your dog in the huge off-leash area. The hiking trail is shorter during high river levels.

It is right on the river, and there are open areas as well as a grassy shaded glen with picnic tables. There is also a place to launch your canoe, kayak, boat here.

We have gone there to walk the dog, and have seen large groups enjoying it. Wide open, basically just fields with river access for boat launch

Great place to walk along the river. Notice the flood mark sign on the large building. Good historic markers and interesting history. Lots of old trees.

Very open lawns, next to the river. Open area for off leash fun. Lots of friendly 4 legged pets and their owners enjoy the open area on sunny days. Away from traffic, very quiet park.
