Get a feel for the park, including its plant and wildlife, at this informative nature center that features great exhibits. You can also pick up handy guides and souvenirs from the store here.
It's no surprise that such a diverse park is so rich in wildlife, not least of which are the birds. Among the varieties you can spot or photograph are the snow goose, barn swallow, marsh wren, wild turkey and morning dove.
There is a swimming pool just opposite the park's main office, which is great for hot summer days to break up all the hiking.
There are two designated picnic shelters in the park. River Shelter is ideal for wheelchair accessibility, while the CCC Shelter has a large capacity for up to 60 diners at once. With grills and charging stations for your electronic devices at both sites, you will want to stop by regularly.
