A lovely asset to this area of the Shawnee National Forest. Rocks to climb, a pool, and a fine campground.

We just popped in here as we were hiking in Shawnee. This was fairly small but had a nice spring, clear water, and some big rocks to wander around and on. Nice, quick stop.

Great park to climb on rocks, play on a swing set, or in the summer months swim in a nice sized pool. There is a campground that looks to be well maintained

Visited the park with my two grandchildren, had a good picnic lunch. We got to climb some rocks, hike and skip rocks in the streams. The park was clean and well maintained.

Bike trails: More like short roads for park employees and visitors. For a real ride, across the highway is a portion of the trail of tears. Through farm country, it had some good back country miles. Gravel and dusty when... More
