This place was really kind of neat!! I wasn't expecting it to be so beautiful. It was a a nice stop off the freeway instead of just stretching our legs at a gas station. Worth it!

Very scenic area. We stopped here to eat lunch along our long trip. Large pavilion with picnic tables. Had a small playground. Lots of grass to run around. This was a scenic spot
to stop for a picnic lunch. Not too far off I-65. The Bell's Tavern ruins are Not allowed to be played in, but they are neat to look at. There were bathrooms, but they were locked when we were there in early April.
