I have visited Pot countless times and always find something new. Today it was a water fountain on the campground. Sometimes it's the shadows changing as the sun moves or the birds or the waves of the bay. It's a runner's paradise because the outer...More

We stopped here not knowing what to expect and we were pleasantly surprised. Next time we are in the area we will camp here. Beautiful wooded campsites. See the tower if you go!

Going through these parks in March is not the best time of year to do so. But still great natural beauty. Good views of the lake. Road to tower was closed so hope to see that next time.

Just like cave point there are so many trails here! Nice place to get a good hike in! Great place to explore with family or spend quality time with a hubby or someone special! The tower here is phenomenal!

This park has several scenic view points (one having an observation tower you can climb about three stories). There is a boat launch, a large campground (with primitive and RV camps separated), and good hiking trails (including the Eastern terminus of the Ice Age trail).

Yes you can park right by the tower and then climb up it for great views. Beautiful shelter areas for picnics that overlook the lake (kids loved "skipping rocks" there, if you know what that means😀). Great biking park with... More
