Held family picnic in park. Rented a shelter. It was supposed to be clean when we arrived but it was not. The rest was OK. Bathrooms were far off from shelter. Good parking. Clean grounds. Clean area.

Grandson graduated from High School and the celebration was held in this park. Great facility for picnics, open air games, and long hikes. Area covered in high pines, etc, so the sun is avoidable if necessary!

Very nice park. There are many Civil War Earthworks to see here along the trails. One can hike over six miles throughout the park. The views of the swamp aka reservoir are very nice. Many and much wild life to view and observe.

Extensive Nature Trails allow you to experience nature without a person or another sign of civilization in sight in places expecting the path. I love it!

You cannot launch your boat at the park. They have paddle boats and canoes for you to rent.
