Memories of the Past - Lots of memories for me as I lived here for several years, went to the country school located on the corner of 290th street and Brushy Creek Road. I am in the process of writing a family history and story of this area.

Horse Camp - I was disappointed to see last year that sevaral NON-Horse people were able to reserve sites in the horse camp. There are so few nice horse camps in our area, that is seem this should not be allowed unless there are empty spaces near the camp date. We would not be allowed to swipe up camp sites in their disignated areas. For this reason several of our horse friends could not get in to camp.

Time with Grandson - What a peace full setting. If you want a quiet, clean, well kept place to camp this is it. My 3 year old Grandson Kolin gives it 2 thumbs u!

swimming - The swimming area is Not usable. It smells like sewage. We do like the camping grounds.

Beautiful but lots of work - This is a State Preserve and is VERY primitive. NO CAMPING ALLOWED. The last sign when turning off pavement onto one lane gravel is small and hard to find. Road in is steep, one lane, somewhat washed out dirt and gravel leading to a turnaround area. Next to the turnaround is a WPA style restroom building. About 75 yards down a dirt and grass path is a WPA style picnic shelter build against a cliff. The stream is still 100?+ vert. below the shelter. The only path down is a steep and difficult dirt path along pock-marked dolomite limestone formations, called ?slump blocks?. Last 25? vert. to the streambed is much steeper and even more difficult. However your reward is a beautiful, clear, cold water stream with many trout, up to pan sized. Once at the bottom travel in the canyon is by way of wading in the streambed. The (same) trail out requires climbing out the first 25? and is steep and strenuous. Very rewarding if you know what you are getting yourself in to!

What were they thinking? - Why were the trees on the north slope girdled by chainsaw? A beautiful wild area has been ruined. Why is logging allowed in this beautiful place?

Must see for Frank Lloyd Wright fans. - The knowledgeable tour guide really enhanced the experience. Wright takes the stunning site and works magic to create a house that will leave you breathless.
