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?

A very narrow insect with skinny legs and a tail

Water scorpions use their tails or siphons as a a "snorkel" thrusting it up through the surface film on the water to the air above. Their legs are not much use in swimming, so most water scorpions spend life near the shoreline.
