Report: Great place to take the kids! We brought a frisbee, a ball and a bat and played for hours! Good trails too. Hardly any other people except one small group who wouldn't put their pitbull on a leash. That is when we finally left. But I won't hold that against the park. The park ranger was friendly and there was lots of exploring to do. My kids aged from 6 all the way up to 13 had a great time! We will go back again soon.
