  • With plenty of trails and open air spots, Steele Creek is my favorite walking/hiking location near my home. You can bike along the trails, fish and wade across the cold stream that cuts through the pa...  more »
  • This park has improved drastically since I was little and came here. I've been here twice in the past 6 months and even though it rained both times, I still had a great time walking around and seeing ...  more »

  • It's a very clean, safe place for your family to get together and have fun. The fishing is good if you know what to use. There are some big bass in here and you can catch them but you'll have to learn what they want each time you go in my experience. The main bike trails are really easy but fun and they are located right beside the lake. They have some intermediate mountain biking trails also that are pretty challenging. Overall it is a great place. They don't allow motor boats on the lake but they do have a boat ramp and allow trolling motors and kayaks, canoes, etc..
  • Beautiful park with playgrounds and a Splash Pad. Hiking and walking too! Very well maintained and clean restrooms. A great place to spend the day.
  • The park has something for everyone. There are some wonderful beginners trails all the way up to intermediate trails. There is also a lakeside trail that is gravel. Inside the main park area, there is a volleyball court area, disc golf. There are also plenty of picnic areas and shelters.
  • It was great. We rented the Rotary Pavillion near the splash pad. The tables had not been completely cleaned and were sticky in spots, and we had to stop a few people from parking down there because not everyone respected the fact that the spot, parking and all, was reserved. Other than that the bathrooms were clean, and the splash pad close. A park employee check in with us twice. Overall it was a pleasant experience. I would do it again.
  • Nice place to picnic and let the kids cool off when it's hot out, and plenty of walking trails. Only down fall is they need more shaded areas around the splash pad.
