  • I hike here all four seasons, and always enjoy the experience. There is a variety of trails, and they are all well-marked and easy to walk. It's a good place for people of most physical abilities to walk, especially since there are several places around the lake to sit down at. Despite this, it doesn't feel too tamed or artificial. It's just incredibly beautiful. The swimming isn't great though. The water is usually pretty warm and for several years has smelled kinda like duck poop. Once you get outside the designated swimming area it's much cleaner and is good for kayaking or other water sports.
  • Awesome little park. Nice beach and picnic areas. Fishing dock, boat launch and campsites. They also have Yurt camping. We kayaked and hiked some easy to intermediate trails around the lake and through the woods. We saw a Bald Eagle in the pine Forest from our kayak and sun bathing turtles. An awesome day!
  • We had a great time at Winterfest today! It's also the perfect place to beat the heat in the Summer!
  • Was there at 6:30 this morning testing ice. Conditions are not good only two and a half two and a quarter inches three out on the main sheet. Would advise ice fisherman to wait until the middle or end of next week
  • I Like this park, my parents took us there when we were kids ( a lot older now ) Now my wife and I take our kids there, it's peaceful and very scenic they also put on programs about animals in Pa Friday - Sunday evening during peak season. We try to make it there camping 2-3 times a year and now we have several friend that follow us there. The staff is very friendly and the park and buildings are well maintained
