  • Quite nice park, good for a walk with dog, or for biking with kids. There is lake (actually not a lake but a dam), but the sand area is very small and usually terribly polluted with geese poo, to clea...  more »
  • The lake is perfect for kayaking, canoeing, or paddle boarding. And the campground is set up for you to enjoy the beauty of nature. Well appointed shelters and bathrooms are ample here. Clean and well...  more »

  • Good. You can always find private spots. The dam shelter is awesome to host parties. The trail that goes around the west side of the park is decent for walking/running too. Who wouldn't like a little beach 5 minutes from their house.
  • During this past Sunday, I was walking the dog with family, and was immediately stopped at the gate and told that we could not walk the conservation area; the person did not explain anything other than that we needed a GRCA membership to walk the path...seems odd because there are other GRCA areas that are free to the public and where you don't require any membership. Also, the roads were snow covered, and not maintained, as well the gates were all closed so even if the membership covered parking, the parking was not even available nor was the road accessible due to the snow, but yet he wanted to charge us? Now when I've gone in the spring/summer, I understand paying my fee to park my car and to launch my kayak and use the man made creek area, but just to walk the path? seems like they aren't encouraging active transportation and creating opportunities for people to participate in healthy lifestyles.
  • Friendly helpful staff. Great park to take the family
  • Pretty much just campsites and no good hiking paths (they're very short)
  • The conservation area is a great place to go any day. There's all kinds of outdoor activities to do on your own or with family and friends.
