I have been there, very nice place. Looks great since the clean up. I'll be headed back in a few weeks when work slows a bit.

Just be cautious when it rains, the river comes up but does seem to drop quickly and the top of the soil / grass is like ice.

I did find a few flakes before the thunder and lightning chased me off.

Cant wait to get back

Just recently checked it out. Looks promising but water too high to safely go into. Was a little disappointed seeing tires in the water and trash left there.

My question is the claim on both sides of the bridge or just the side where the sign is?

Also, was this an old OSPA claim?
