  • Such a great place! Definitely a hidden gem on the East Side of Iowa City. I've lived in/around Iowa City for 20+ years & have driven past this place so many times but never knew all the great things it had to offer. Very beautiful, quiet & clean. Boat & Paddle Board Rentals are such a great idea & very fun! Just wish it was closer to where I live (North Liberty) so I could visit it more often!
  • Gorgeous place! Went for a wedding and reception and kind of wish I would have gotten married here.
  • A good place for social gatherings and events. Close to Iowa City. Lot of parking lots. No alcoholic beverages allowed.
  • Its beautyful out there!! Its about 2 miles around the lake. . Easy to walk or Run and the ground is very even. Super nice Area!
  • Has a man made lake with a paved trail good for walking, biking and rollerblading. During the summer you can rent out paddle boards, kayaks, and canoes at hourly rates of around 12$ each. A small food shack opens up in the summer too. I recommend renting out paddle boards with some friends. One of the more fun things we have done.
