Visitor Comments, Memories and Reviews
September 24 First day of Fall 2015! by Donna
First time visitors and what a beautiful park! We will definitely be back. We drove from Lafayette, In, But we never came across a park employee, no one at the gates to take our entry money? Park was quiet, clean, lots to explore and the shelters were very nice.
May 4 great fun
So much fun
