The scenery is breathtaking! I love to go there as often as possible. My children love to enjoy the natural beauty along the river with me. its a wonderful family experience
There are not too many places to get above things to look around. Here is one place you can do it! Go up early and watch the sunrise - you wont be disappointed. Very few people here at any time of day, but less in the morning! Bring a camera.
We visit this park as part of our annual visit to the three state parks in the area. We will do at least a couple of the hiking trails, Forest Ridge and River Bluff. The River Bluff one (once you drive in make a first right and it is past the playground) is short but has a steep hike up... 更多

This is a nice place to visit especially in the fall to view the nice views of the river with all the leaves changing color. There are a few steps to climb up to the top of castle rock itself so it can be difficult for some people. Also nice place to stop and have a picnic. I haven't personal... 更多
