Went here as a child and decided to go back. It’s not huge but fun to walk around and check out the rock formations. If you are in the area defiantly worth the stop.

Very unique experience, the scenery is great and the whole place is just quaint and peaceful. *If you have health problems or are overweight it might be difficult to maneuver through some of the area's.

Very impressive rock formations. Must be able to walk over rough terrain. The children that were there really seemed to be having a good time although the parents had a tough time keeping them from climbing the rocks.

I believe there are a few grills and there are a few places near the parking lot that you can set up. There are not grills or places within the park.
