Don’t let the “equestrian” label scare you off if you only have a tent. While these rustic sites are horse-friendly, the park’s got more miles of trails for hikers (17 miles) and mountain bikers (16 miles) than for the riders (12 miles). For a place so close to the urban world, the 5,900 acres have much to offer in environments ranging from swamp forest to mixed hardwood, and a variety of unusual plants and critters. Wildflower viewing and birding are popular in the spring. Fishing and boating enthusiasts have access to 4 lakes.
