There is a $5.00 fee. You are on your honor to pay. The grandkids liked playing in the small creek. They also were able to climb some rocks.

We had no idea this was even there. We truly enjoyed our time and hiking the area. We had never heard of this we just saw the sign along the highway and decided to go see. We were not disappointed.
