  • Great spot to camp for a couple nights. It was kind of damp and misty but the tree canopy kept us dry. Nice walk down to the lake through a marshy area with boardwalk.
  • Playground for the kids, good size plots and regular ranger. Winter camping isn't for everyone but it's worth it!
  • Lovely park with lots of trails for varying fitness levels. Great for the dogs too
  • So beautiful here. I go here to come to Hicks Lake. Superb swimming. Clean water and safe environment. Not a lot of people know about this place so while other Lakes are packed with people, this one remains tolerable with the amount of people
  • so serene and beutiful. We often visit as early as April and there can be a lot of rain.
