I lived in the mentor area for years... And this place is the best place to relax and just take in nature... We came out here from Washington state on vacation... A must do on a warm summer day or evening.

Nice area for birding or just enjoying nature. Canoe access, fishing, etc. Have only been herein the springtime so not sure what the rest of the year has to offer.
