This is my favorite place to go on a nice day. The trails along the river and through the woods are filled with all manner of wild life. The picnic area is a clean and happy place for a family gathering or just a quiet...More
I enjoyed paddling here on a recent Saturday. There’s a nice floating dock for kayaks (bring your own on car top) at Bushey Point. Saw plenty of ospreys and other birds, and the railroad bridge over the water is cool. Also noticed the fishing pier,...More

This is large park for many activities including swimming. But mostly for boaters, with two large boat ramps and tow huge parking lots, you will see many boaters. Offer gas, dump station, offer rental of kayak, canoe, SUP, snacks.

It is not safe for swimming. The cleanliness of the water is in question, there are some undercurrents that are dangerous, and there is underwater vegetation that has been known to ensnare waders and swimmers. There are no swimming signs, but unfortunately, some do not heed and there have been drownings. On the other hand, there is an interesting history on signs in the Park and in the Visitor Center. There’s also a nice play ground. Thanks for asking.
