Our kids have been here several times and always have a blast learning about the different plants and animals that live in the marsh. Their birthday parties are a lot of fun as well.

Nice quite place which is very well maintained. Pet friendly - I have seen people walk their dogs. Kid friendly too. Nice boardwalk along the creek, and a good view of Mt. Nittany.
