  • The pools are to small for the amount of people who come here. It is overrun with highschool kids and the gate attendant is not all that friendly of a person. It's a nice area with impressive views and a nice shaded trail. I recommend coming early or before school ends to get the most out of it.
  • 4 stars only because the bathrooms stink horribly and there isn't a bench or anything to make changing easier. A room just for changing would be great! Otherwise we had a great time at the beach!
  • When I was in my late teens a group of friends used to swim and dive from the rock at these quarries before it was a park. We would drive from Mpls up there and spend the whole day hanging out. It is the greatest place. The water was crystal clear back then. I will for sure be heading up there soon.
  • Beautiful place to walk and swim. I really enjoy the views especially in the fall and winter. My dogs love walking there.
  • Beautiful place to go swimming and kid friendly! $20 for an annual tag! So worth it!
