As the river snakes through the park, you'll enjoy views of picturesque bluffs and woodland. Every five miles or so, there are boat launches, so you can stop off whenever you like for a picnic or wildlife watching. These 9,000 acres of parkland are a vast playground for hiking, hunting, and skiing in the wintertime.
A unique park that satisfies explorers and animal lovers alike, this 1,300-acre park is home to a veritable Noah's ark of animals. Bobcats and deer scurry through its meadows, while bald eagles and hawks hover overhead. Try your hand at archery, or take mountain bikes into the wilderness.
Some 20 Native American burial grounds draw crowds to this stunning 1,600-acre park, which is also home to a historic pioneer river crossing. Many of the trees in the park date back to those days. After hiking to explore this unique scenery, take a boat out, or swim in the 30-acre lake.
