  • I was disappointed by the lack of water. The top of the water has a haze/moldy look and the goose poop and bugs are out of control! We will not return 
  • Quiet, nice walking paths. Facilites are clean and well maintained, great pavilions for picnics or family gatherings.
  • It's great for hanging out with friends and having a barbecue, playing games. Some of the paths are in need of repair. So watch your step. Otherwise, a great place to chill.
  • Simply Stunning! The Island and Gazebo are Breathtaking, As Is The Lake! My Sister and I Come Here To Walk In The Summer!
  • One of the most beautiful parks I've been to. Calm and popular with the locals
  • It's beautiful with natural wildlife that come and go as they please. A good place to relax with the family. There are picnic areas and playgrounds. If you have a south Dakota fishing license, they permit fishing in all bodies of water.
