Have visited many times during the warmer months. Located on a good size reservoir, the entire area is picturesque and well kept. The beach is clearly defined and suitable for swimming for any age. Picnic areas are adequate however additional tables would certainly be helpful....More

When it is open, this is a great place to take your dog for a walk and a quick swim. Safe area right behind the Senior Center. Parking can be tricky but usually not so bad.

Great for the family or a nice hike with the one you love. There is also a beach and picnic area nearby. We like to take our canoe on the lake. So peaceful!

The parks offers hiking, biking and swimming opportunities. Also, if you have good knees, running tracks are available.

Wonderful, peaceful day on the water. This is a large lake that also has a dog friendly walking trail around the whole lake..so if you don't like dogs you may want to get elsewhere. Plenty of inlets along the way to pull your kayak over...More
