Plan a picnic lunch, there are several grills and pavilion areas available.
Mosquitos can be bad in the park from spring through fall. Bring bug spray.
The park is open sunrise to sundown and it is less crowded closest to those times.
The park has activities for all seasons. There is sledding and cross-country skiing in the winter and the trails and disc golf are open late spring through late fall.
Parking at the main entrance off of Grovenburg Road costs $3-$4 per car. Parking at the Riverbend Trailhead off of Nichols Road or at the back of the park at McNamara Landing are both free.
