Established in 2009, the park boasts a series of lakes, rivers, and picturesque forest scenery. Pitch a tent at one of the campsites, enjoy a lakeside picnic, or explore the area on a bike. If you're short on time, you can go canoeing on the rushing river, and take the leafy woodland path to the waterfall.
