Clean air and lovely scenery of lakes and mountains if you enjoy nature you should not miss it. There are hop on buses within the park and boardwalks are easy for all to enjoy the park itself.

We went in May, when it was dry. I would think it would still be beautiful in the rainy season, but some of the views over the mountains and lakes may not be as clear. I'm sorry I don't know about the bus, although the park... More
