Park Fun

A little boy with a white hat and a yellow lifejacket is wading in the tree lined and rocky river

It is a great idea to get in and see the river up close, but remember to also be safe.

What is there to do here?

Stop by a Visitor Center to learn about some of the creatures that live in the park and find out about the junior ranger program.

The SOFA program is another way to get out and have some fun.

Ask a ranger. They will be sure to have ideas that will match your famiy and the time you have. We hope you will be able to spend some time with our rivers and have some fun.

Did You Know?

What looks like a striped fish with several tails is actually the opening of the mussel shell which is hard to see.

Mussels rely on fish to carry their young around until they are old enough to drop to the river bottom. To attract the fish and attach their young, mussels put on displays that make fish think they are fish or other food. The mussel shell, which is all we normally see, is now barely visible.
