Visitor Tips and News About Wilderness Park: USA's Vietnam
It takes about 30 minutes to walk down the path and snap some pictures. Definitely a unique site to see in the USA. We went during a light rain, and the canopy was so dense that we didn't get wet.[Scott B., 12/28/2012]
Several species of bamboo planted back in the 1940s surround a small pond, creating a 60-foot-tall canopy. Large frogs sit on lilypads in the pond. Feels like you are walking somewhere in Asia, and this place was used for training during the Vietnam War.[Laura S, 08/07/2012]
