  • Tons of fun!! Huge area so bring your walking shoes. We rented bikes which is fun but takes alot out of you!!Bike rental cost 30 per day or 17$ for 2 hrs . The bikes where at the visitor center and the gentleman that rented out the bikes with very nice. After a few hours of bike riding we returned a bikes. Then we went and drove the parks by car. Very good day and nice part there is no entry fee to any of the parks or to park. If you are in the area it is definitely worth checking out.
  • The park is always one of my favorite places. I have been coming here for years. There is a sense of history that I don't feel any where else. There are miles of walking trails. The visitor center is lovely. But the chapel is a must visit. I have spent many hours sitting in the chapel in the peace and quiet.
