We were looking for a place to picnic and headed for Lake Superior. Upon arrival, it was so crowded, there wasn't even a parking space (on a Sunday). We drove another few feet and low and behold, there was another park, with free parking (as opposed to Superior, where there was an admission fee). We had a nice enjoyable picnic.

Not much to do here, so if all you wish to do is lay back and watch a small lake, this is your spot! Limited facilities in my opinion, as it is a small park.

Lots of great fishing, clean shores and water. Lots of trails to hike around the lake and surrounding area. Close enough to Bethel Woods to hear free concert music!

Great place to get together with friends and family. There are picnic tables, bathrooms, a beach, and playground for kids.

dirty facilities. It used to be much cleaner and the staff seemed to care more. the "beach" area needs more sand and revamping. It just stopped being fun to go anymore. Plus the lake water was not clean.

this could be a nice place, but just too many people had started to use it as their personal park. No one clean up after themselves and the place is starting to look like a garbage dump. The people are rude.

But if youre planning on swimming. You are boxed in and restricted to a tiny area.

We haven't been there for a picnic or swimming yet, but it looks like a very nice place to spend a summer day.

The beach area is dirty and the sand needs to have all the sticks and dead grass removed. This year seems to be a bit of a decline in the up keep of the lake.What a disapointment because the area near Bethal woods is very pretty.
