    My family discovered Mousetail Landing State Park last year (summer of 2010) and absolutely feel in love with it. So much so that we went on 3 different trips with the last 2 being accompanied by others in our family. We have found a new treasure and are sure to return on annual summer weekend trips. Thanks to the rangers and park staff for the great job that you do.
