Jacob's Review:
   We saw armadillo holes! Man it is steep, it is neat to eat lunch, see the plants and butterflies fly by. The trails can be kinda hard to go down, but you don't have to if you don't want to.
   The lake (river) is pretty & you can swim in it, I saw dragon flies and lizards with really long tails - and I saw a Woolly Bully caterpillar.
   There is big rocks to climb on and it looks like your on the moon. There is a sandy beach along the river were people swim and fish - and you can find little sea shells in the sand!

Dad's Notes:
   There is a lot to see and do here - picnic areas, hiking, camping, mountain biking - swimming area is great - like Jacob mentioned there is sandy beaches along the river, nice clear blue green swimmin holes in the river. I recommend life jackets for the kids that aren't great swimmers. The swimmin area is great - but don't miss the falls (two separate areas)!

   There is a few mountain bike trails - the best is 7 miles. You will get a map as you come in. The falls is very scenic, lots of smooth boulders, wide low-rolling falls into clear pools and carved water chutes. Take a hike upstream over the falls, lots of boulders here to climb on, or just sit and relax on the rocks by the falls and enjoy!

Jacob Tip:   When you are climbing on rocks you can use your last handhold as a foothold as you go up!
