A great park to take kids! We are passing through and found this little spot using this app. We made the quick drive from our campsite, and we couldn't be happier with what we found! This is a well maintained park with several workout "pods" and new play equipment throughout. We found the interpretive trails to be pretty clear and everything mowed beautifully. There is a newly paved walking trail as well with disc golf along the way. The lake is stunning and complete with a large beach area and sectioned swimming spot. Lots of people fishing and camping. Highly recommend if you have kids that need to burn off some energy and you like an easy stroll. Normal mosquito activity when we visited. Make sure to spray yourself.

Great trail with mowed walking access. Lots of ticks. There little trails that go to the water. There is lots of glass so be on the lookout! Great for a quick hike if you just need to get outside! Bring your suit to cool down after in the water!
