There is a lot to do at this extremely underrated State Park. The DNR does a wonderful job of keeping this nice park well kept. If you have a negative opinion from the past it would be a wise choice to go down there on a nice day to check out the improvements they have made all over the area. Extremely scenic area that has a numerous abundance of wildlife. As matter of fact there are Bald eagles around the lake as I write this quick write up!

Easy. Nice paved trail with minimum traffic for a Saturday morning - which is a good thing. I would not classify it as beautiful. The lake was not really visible from the trail.
