  • Wonderful place to hike, swim, paddle and so much more. Best park in the corridor. Go hike out to the dam and enjoy a beautiful 360 view of the lake and Coralville lake at the peak of a giant rock.
  • This review pertains to the boat rentals available here: We joined up with some friends out here on a lazy Sunday afternoon and what a great little gem this place is! You basically drive through Solon and dead-end into Lake MacBride park, where a public beach for kids to play resides as well as this boat rental spot. For $45 an hour you can rent a pontoon boat that seats 10. Word to all dudes - floating around as the skipper is totally boss! It's been a long time since I've driven a boat and while we topped at about 7 mph, it was a great time. Totally worth checking it out!
  • Great place to go and visit on land and out on the water. Very pretty and well maintained.
  • It's a very beautiful park near a big lake. There are some long and quick trails just along the lake. Some good fishing spots. There is a small waterfall at one end of dam.
  • Very senic good hiking part of waterfalls of iowa tour actually a spillway but very nice
