Great for a quick visit, and fun to surface collect fossils. We found crinoids and a couple of brachiopods. Plan for sun- the only shade is a tarp over a couple of picnic tables. Bring plenty of water and sunscreen. It's essentially undeveloped, so don't expect amenities. There was a portable toilet in the parking area.
Went here after major storm, early on a Sunday morning. I was alone wandering around. The fossils are not overly impressive, but yes they are lying all over the ground. This would be great for kids. Take some small bags for finds, you don't really need a spade or anything. The ground is very muddy, there is a natural stream running through the ground and is quite boggy in places. There doesn't seem to be anything on sat av, so just keep following the Indian Creek Road until you see it right in front of you. You CAN'T miss it, trust yourself and keep going.
