The park is divided into two by Douglas Ave. There are hiking and biking trails on the west side. The east side has a campground, a lake with swimming, tennis courts, and both side have picnic areas.

This is a county park with full hook up! Very clean and the park employees are always driving around making sure everything was ok. You can fish on the lake or take a walk or bike ride on the paved path. Would defiantly stay again.
