This is a pretty park to visit. It offers a beautiful lake for fishing and kayaking. It has hiking and biking trails and picnic shelters. There is a playground for kids and a dog park for the four legged ones. They offer swimming in the lake at the beach during the summer. The only negative is that they charge a fee during the summer months. Overall it is a very nice place to visit.

Nice lake area we like to pack a picnic lunch and go sit at one of there picnic table and enjoy lunch and the outdoors. They have a walking trail and dog park that right on the water for the dogs that love water. They have a public beach area that is small and gets crowded fast. Off season it's free to enjoy the park area.

Stopped here with my 2 kids on a very hot day. Easy access and pretty scenery, but the water was not as refreshing as I'd hoped, as it was very warm in spots. We arrived in the late afternoon, so it was not too crowded. Friendly staff, but bathrooms & facilities were not very clean.

There's a nice little beach here, along with a concrete boat ramp, fishing docks with handicap access, and bank fishing spots with picnic benches. It's a great place to take a family!

The best dog park ever. There's always at least one or two dogs there. It's a huge space, probably two or three acres, and it's on the water front of the lake, at least fifty feet of shore line. It's a small walk through the woods to get to it, which isn't super well labelled,but it's very worth it when you get there!
