  • A very beautiful park and beach. Lots of great green space as well as a water area and beach. It's a good area to relax. Clean and well maintained.  more »

  • Very pretty park but can get very crowded on the weekends. You need to be there when it opens if you want to get in and park. Warning, there are NO places to park nearby where you can walk to get in. There is one sandwich place close to the entrance where you can get food and drinks and one restaurant/ bar.
  • This used to be an awesome swimming/BBQ area for families. Now it's quite expensive to park. And the people seem to play music very loud and leave garbage everywhere. I honestly saw some lady clean out her baby's diaper in the water a few years back. Nice hiking trails. Lots of "no swimming" signs due to inexperienced people being stupid. I would never go here in a weekend again.
  • Very pretty and accessible park. Free admission. Looks gorgeous in the fall.
  • Giving 4 starts only BC I think the swimming area should be a little deeper. Its only maybe 4 ft... Nice picnic and BBQ areas, clean beach they rake it all the time. Nice place to fish or just relax
  • Very nice and cool place. Wonderful fall colors around and lake view.
