We've been coming here for a couple years now. However to be honest we only live at the end of the road, so convenience is a big plus. The reason why we choose to come here is that it's a compact park while still remaining remote. There are many water access points and our dogs love nothing more than coming... More

The North side of the park rambles through trees and pastures, sometimes along a small creek. The trails are well maintained and easy to follow, less than two miles to wander the loop.

I went on a few of the trails with my dog. I loved it and he loved it. I have not fully explored the park yet, but the trails are nice and woodsy with some pasture areas. The part of the main trail I was on, is mainly flat and pastoral, but the trail offshoots are of varying inclinations and... More

We love the diversity of the paths throughout this park! It meanders through open areas, down to the river several times, yes! and through the woods! Nice benches along the way. We like the bridges that span wet lands. I would recommend this park to couples, families and anyone who just likes to hike w/o getting exhausted! It's very scenic!

We've been to the Park many times, in all seasons, mostly for a walk on a nice day. We've only been in the part of the Park on the north side of I-88. Pleasant paths, great scenery, with a stream winding through it. You can pretty much stay on the level, or try the hilly bits, which are outside the... More

State park has lower and upper locations. Lower part has parking area and picnic tables near parking area. Good for family walks. Upper part entrance difficult to find and requires parking along road. Upper part is truly hiking with uphill start and choices for lengths of trails. Often quite wet in spring early summer, snow and ice in winter. Excellent... More

This is a small State Park with the entrance and parking area just off of Exit 17 on I-88. There are several short trails that begin from the back of the parking lot with a fairly well kept port-a-potty nearby. There is no fee to enter the park, and the the park is not staffed. The trails are maintained and... More

This is a great place to go hiking with your dogs. They have a trail map, parking, and there are picnic tables nearby where you park. The majority of the actual trail-area of the park is very isolated and wild, which is great for the wilderness-wanderer. My three dogs loved the trails- which are partially wooded and partially field. Unfortunately,... More

We walked the marked path. Nothing all that interesting, but a pleasant walk. Mostly flat. You walk around a couple of corn fields. Part of the path goes around a small river/creek. Meh.
