This park offers so much - beautiful scenery, great trails, wildlife, picnic areas. Park is superbly maintained - trails mowed, picnic areas clean and welcoming, very clean restrooms. Wonderful place for bird watching, hiking or just a casual walk.

At the campsites, yes. There aren't any at the historical site, but there is an area within the park with picnic tables. You go right shortly after passing the first guard house.

We have to have at least one person that is 18 years old. The reservation must be in that person's name and they much be present.
