Birders can view seasonal species during peak migrations, as well as year-round residents. While snakes and turtles are commonly seen from the trails, raccoons, rabbits, opossums, armadillos, squirrels, foxes, coyotes, deer and otter are also known to inhabit the site.
Yes! 12 hour road trip with 2 toddlers, and this was a PERFECT stop. Fun, safe, close to the highway, close to food!
It was ok. Very easy walking, not much to see. Would probably be great for small children.
