  • Well I'm trying to be level headed while writing this for I am still very upset about the experience I had here on Monday. It seems like this beach has many visitors who are disrespectful, rude and no qualms about leering at underage girls in bathing suits! Being their culture to blame I don't know... possibly. So mother's and fathers of daughter's be weary before letting your child or teen go here! Quite disgusted at what I saw and also experienced, one group of young teens actually left after the pack of guys were licking their lips and making disgusting jester's at them. I tried to intervene since they did not have parents there and they didn't seem to speak English or just acted like they didn't for as I walked away they made lewd comments about my "assets". I didn't realize I had to cover my whole body while trying to enjoy a day with my family here or else suffer the stares of gross, sexually aggressive and objectifying "guys". Mind you, these 'guys" were 35-60 years old with a large group of family but I dare not call them men for real men would not act like that! I wish the park employees would do something about this indecent behavior but I guess they don't expect to tell grown guys how to act decently. Besides this awful experience the beach has not changed much, still gravel like sand and murky water that leaves you feeling like you need to go shower asap. Will not be returning.
  • Nice conservative area which you can rest during the morning or in the evening. There are so many open area which you should put on sun screen on the day time in the summer but if it in the winter just enjoy the snow. You will have a great time there.
  • We gave been to Kelso before. Very beautiful experience. However, on weekends if you do not arrive early (11am - opening time for boating) be prepared to wait almost an hour to rent a canoe. Kayaks are also very popular and can be rented out already. You might need to wait even longer for a kayak. Trails are enjoyable with breathtaking cliffs and views. A bit too close to the highway though. You'll hear sounds of traffic more than of nature.
  • This place is good if you want to spend a few hours out in park.. The trails are quite easy to follow. It has a few scenic view points.
  • Good boat ride in the lake. Nice places to sit and dine. Vast area. Family place.
