The park is located well outside the city in an area I would not travel through except in a group. The pavilion area worked well for my large group and the playground was great for the kids.

We stayed for a week. It was quiet, well-kept, and close to the Interstate, which we used often for traveling to different places of interest. As we are seniors, the discount made it very affordable, at under $20 a night.
