  • Has a nice playground, warm water beach, and great camp spots. This is a really nice park. I loved my time there. We had a large camp spot. 
  • Great place for family day. We were there just for the beach, not for the hiking. Kids loved this place. Water was warm, but beach a little bit rocky. We spent there all day and were very happy. My ad...  read more »
  • I went here near the middle of March. I loved every second, every view! Very gorgeous to watch the sun set too. Super relaxing. 
  • Terrible. If you are going with your watercraft and at the entrance gate see sign "no open parking spaces", make sure to check that statment by your self 'caz the door guy lazy and lying. He kept telling "no empty spaces" even after i showed him 3 and its not include the one that he put cones on it. Other than that OK. If you like smoking people around your kids. As for me - first time in this season, and las time in general. Rather go to American Lake
  • The views. The water. The salt lake. Great park if you can find parking. Discover passes are mandatory. Can be purchased on the spot. Parking nazis... I mean "rangers" will place cones in the most random places. God help you if you even look at those perfectly parkable spots. Lots of Russian speakers. Read the first line.
  • Excellent camping spot. The campground is a little cramped and the road through the park can be a little busy, but overall the park is fantastic. It has a great swimming area, staff are friendly and helpful, and even some good fishing. Check it out!
  • Great 2 mile trail good for all ages. A creek through the camp ground. Wonderful clean swimming on the sound.
  • It's a small park, and has easy access to bathrooms. It can get very crowded on weekends.
