Great place to visit and enjoy the museum, fort, picnic areas and hiking trails. Starting in April the reenactments will begin once again call ahead and see what's in store for any day. The Staff and reenactors are extremely informative and helpful there. So pack a lunch and spend a hour or two maybe all day to enjoy the park.
