I spent a lovely Sunday paddling around on a Kayak and doing some fishing with my wife and dog before having a great picnic in the park. This park is huge and has all of the amenities you could want. It's beautifully maintained. Live bait available. Restrooms on premises.

We stopped in here while one of the community events (ADA Tour de cure) was going on. There were lots of bikers ready to ride. We took a peek at Go Ape since it is back where the ADA tour de cure kicked off. It was interesting to watch & there were lots of people waiting to zip-line, but it... More

There was a huge amount of people which is understandible. However, there was one park ranger that we saw all day. We watched numerous people disrespecting the park in many ways. We watched children dangling from and breaking tree limbs, people engaging in smoking marijuana right in front of our child as we tried to fish. Two people on paddle... More

Expensive at $28 per night. Address is totally different than the one posted on the website. Wear your shower shoes for sure. Mold, cracked tiles, dead (mummified) insects & dirt in the bathhouse on the floors & walls. Standing water at the lone dump station, over flowing trash dumpsters, & no individual water, trash cans or dump at the marginally... More

Great place to let the fast pace pass you by. Whether out for a walk or paddling in a Conoe, it is nice to enjoy nature. Lots of turtles and fish. Safe and clean. Highly recommend packing a picnic and going to relax. Nice playground for the kids, boats to rent and plenty of space to spread out. You can... More

Lums Pond is very nicely maintained. I ride my bike thru the park often. I love the peace and tranquility of the lake.

I went there many times and loved the boat ride all the most. Every time I went there was for a party. I heard that they added the zip lines which is of my kind. Love to try the "Go Ape" zip lines.

This review is in regards to their cancellation policy. We rented a Yurt and a tent site for a weekend in May. I called to cancel 5 days out and was told we were still going to be charged 1 full night's cost for the Yurt and Tent site. So I essentially just spent $78 to NOT stay at this... More

So peaceful, yet so many activities to take part in. Being mobility challanged, was thrilled to find the boardwalk thru the woods. But especially love the lake. So beautiful. Love this place. Thats all there is to say...
