This is a fantastic park for viewing nature! Blots of paths to hike and a horse trail too! You can't rent horses but if you have your own the trail is lovely! There is a small play area and several places to picnic. They have me outside shelter and two really nice indoor shelters you can rent. There is also a run area for dogs. This is a beautiful park!

Well-maintained hiking trails with some spectacular views! There's a huge mound at the dam between Lake Macbride and Coralville Lake - I'm definitely going back to watch the sunset from this spot! If you hopscotch your way across the dam's rocks, you can access several more miles of trail on the other side. Lots of wildlife - we spotted deer, woodpeckers, squirrels, rabbits, and twelve bald eagles (we're pretty sure there were another dozen further up stream but they were too far away to

This park is always a great place. The several hiking trails are long and always an adventure. There's a ramp if you want to take your boat onto the river. Camping is for pull-behinds, motor-homes, and tents with primitive camping. Also cabin rental is available. There's even a large building where you can have a wedding reception, family reunion, or birthday party.
