  • Bathrooms were clean. Lots of shade and picnic tables. Nice pathways. Swimming area is not kept up. Wished I could mow their foot tall weeds the whole time I was there. $10 day use fee unless you have a Discover Pass.
  • A great park to have an outing with the family. The swimming was nice. The playground was a little scary for younger kids. There are changing rooms and water fountains.
  • Has something for everyone! Play ground right next to the swimming area. Fishing, boating, hiking and camping. All the people who work there from the volunteers to the people running the boat rentals are so nice.
  • Fun place for a family camping trip. Kid friendly swim area at the day use area also.
  • Spectacular place for old peoples camping, relaxing and peaceful. Equipted with everything for fun filled days for the entire family.
