We attended an all-day meeting at the Lodge at Little Seneca Creek adjacent to the park: it's an attractive log-cabin style meeting room of moderate size, vaulting ceiling and rustic appearance that easily accommodates about 50 participants. We were comfortable and well-fed. It was easy...More

Went here as part of an outdoors class. The shelters were really nice in the shade to sit in. Left our stuff there as we ran about the park trails hiking and biking. There are plenty of soccer and baseball fields too.
