We mostly drove thru and around. Nice facilities but not great. Liked the beach area but was cool and very windy when we were there so we opted out of hiking.

The beach is clean and uncrowded. There is also a very nice playground for the kids. This park includes walking trails, picnic benches, grills, and bathrooms.

No blue green algae. Water very shallow, but clean. Lifeguards on duty. Reasonably priced. Clean surroundings, lots of parking, although they could have more shade. Picnic tables available. Lovely location.

This is a quiet, beautiful park--lake (with some boats), lots of trails, free parking, clean "port-a-potty." A couple of benches facing the lake. Extremely peaceful and relaxing. I wish I leaved nearby because I'd visit very often.

There is a lot of this park along the lake there. Surely some part of it, even if not in the regular beach, dogs can enjoy the water too. Trails along the waterfront are plentiful there. I saw dogs in the water in the past... More
