fun is just around the corner

  • Several walking and hiking trails snake through the beautiful wooded areas within our park. Guided nature walks are provided regularly.

  • The Riverside is the cyclist’s dream. We offer several paved and unpaved trails for the beginner, expert, and everyone in between. The views are absolutely breathtaking.

  • We keep our fishing pond stocked year-round with an assortment of species. Serious fishermen can sign up for guided fishing tours along the Little Red River with Trout Magnet creator Jeff Smith.

  • Our boat launch provides a spot to set out upriver. We also provide storage space for boats and canoes and rental options for those who don’t have their own.

  • ZiplinIng

    This will probably be the thing your kid wants to do the most. Don’t worry, it’s completely safe--even grandma could do it.

  • The Riverside has great options for swimming and floating. We have designated water areas to splash around and cool off. Make sure to stop by the rope swing if you're feeling adventurous! 



Those who really want to “rough it” can utilize our camping area, complete with picnic tables, public restrooms, and RV hookups.
