  • Awesome trails. Boats on the lake. Nature center and activities we hiked with our dogs. Nice trails for hiking, biking, or running. The staff are knowledgeable and courteous. Couldn't of had a better afternoon.
  • This place is awesome. Start at the Nook and check out the turtles, bats, skulls, etc. Give a bit of cash, we left $5 initially but after we visited the lake and paddled out in the free canoe with my daughters using free push-button rods from the classroom to catch the biggest bluegill I've ever seen we went back and added another $20 to the donation box. The swimming dock is brand new and beautiful, the bottom is sandy and the floating platform is great. They have maybe 8 large canoes, 2 sit-on-top kayaks and a single sit-inside yak. They also have a paddle boat that was a ton of fun.
  • Calm and beautiful
