The biggest disadvantage is having to drive 4 miles on a dirt road to get there. Once there, it is a small but nice display of plants and trees. You can also see birds as they fly around. The garden is divided into sections. When...More

We thought the Arboretum would be a nice sidetrip but were surprised that the road was not paved. Some garden areas but mostly forest. It was late in the season and frost in the morning has become typical in late October and November at this...More

We went a few days before closing for winter. Nothing much to see. Should have been half price, at least. Sucked in! No doubt better in spring.

My wife loved this place. Our guide that took us through the trails of wildlife and vegetation was very knowledgeable. Even though it was a warm day we found it refreshing from the shade of the pines. Just a nice relaxing attraction.

Aborted trip 2 miles from Arboretum because road was likely to damage our rented car at 10 miles per hour.

I went to the Arboretum with a group of friends and was very disappointed with what they had and for the cost . I have gone to other facilities like this one and I consider this one to be below average.

We needed a quiet, relaxing place to go to recharge our batteries after a few hectic days and the arboretum certainly fit the bill. Entry fee is very reasonable, only $17 for the two of us and we were there all morning! We had a...More
