  • This is where I first learned to kayak with my inflatable kayak (Sea Eagle 330). There is a parking area on street right next to where you can put your kayak in, a little land area with a bench and some moorings. I got a regional boat pass that covered Lake Needwood and Black Hill Regional as regional parks for Montgomery County and then I did not have to pay fee or go in where they rent boats and could stay out all day. Do not eat the fish here- catch and release- do not let your pets swim here- has the algae- and clean your boat bottom before putting in anywhere else. Nice area to learn and not crowded usually. I did go during the week on my days off.
  • Always a great people watching, ornithologist, daycare, family, bike riding, hiking, car cruising venue. Lots to do and see. Be aware however, dogs should not go in the Lake Water due to a nasty blue algae that in process of being eradicated.
  • A good local park. Boat rentals or bring your own. Picnic, volleyball. The trail goes down to the Potomac River in Washington DC.
  • Seem like a nice place
  • Maintained trail, an easy hike around the lake, any time of year.
