  • Most relaxing place you will ever go. They have large picnic tables. Bring your chairs to sit down by the river. I recommend you take a picnic or cookout on one of the grills. Sit back, relax, enjoy the sound of the river running thru it. There is wildlife. Plenty of parking & picnic areas & clean restrooms thru out the area. You can take a nice hike thru the area too. It is so beautiful & relaxing. Stop by even to just take a nap. There is a swimming area or just dip your toes into the COLD FLOWING WATER
  • Favorite spot for picknic. Creek side under the canopy is great. Hiking trails start here. Plan to go here
  • Great place to visit. Beautiful rocky creek. Can be hard to find a spot to park.
