“"Quiet Small Retreat"”
Reviewed 25 May 2013

Not very large but it does have a few really nice easy trails especially the one around the lake.
A great place if you want to stay local and just go for a leisurely stroll in the woods.Nothing strenuous about this place.If you're into history regarding Presidents there is a small but very interesting museum on Andrew Jackson.Recommend if you have nothing better to do with your spare time especially during the week.

“Quiet oasis”
Reviewed 9 March 2013

It is not far away from the bustling city of Charlotte, yet is seems as if it is in another world. The park is peaceful. We thoroughly enjoyed it!

“Beautiful park, excellent venue for meeting”
Reviewed 8 March 2013

I attended a meeting at AJSP. The facility that we used was perfect. It was comfortable and accommodated our needs perfectly. It had restroom facilities and a small kitchen and was set in the center of the historical area of the park. The trails were nice, the schoolhouse has a very neat collection of school desks and interpretive early educational information. The museum has a nice film and is an easy user friendly look at the life of Andrew Jackson and life of the time period. The campground is being renovated and is expected to be open again shortly. The lake was quite peaceful and beautiful with a nice trail around the lake. Park staff were very friendly and accommodating and the park was impeccably clean. An amazing value, a nice 'day away' and a great place to hold a relaxed meeting. Very much recommended, especially during the week, when there were very few folks other than us.

“nice quiet place to walk”
Reviewed 7 March 2013

It is a small park but nice place to walk. Trails are flat but be sure to wear good sturdy shoes since the trails are not paved
