We took the 3.4 mile walk around the major part of the lake and it was delightful. Some lovely views of the lake. A nice thing to do in the morning.

This is a very scenic and pretty park. There are lots of nice picnic areas however some of the table are in need of replacement. A great. The hike around the lake is just a little over 3 miles and an easy walk/run. Boating, fishing, swimming, ball fields , play grounds, and camping available.
