You can walk along the dam to get a very nice view of the lake. Some people were walking down a trail (a little steep) to the lake that had a little sandy area. Free.

Went in the middle of the day and walked along the dam. The walk was 0.8 miles one way but with a nice, large path that allowed everyone to walk comfortably. The park is pet friendly (a plus) and definitely a family favorite. The gate to get to the walkway on the dam wasn't accessible for a wheelchair so I... More

We decided that it was worth a visit, so we drove over to the park. We were not disappointed. What a beautiful location with great views of the lake. While at the park, we... More

My wife and I were encouraged to visit this park by the extremely helpful ladies who worked in the local chamber of commerce visitors centre. It was a short drive up to the park. There was no fee. From the park, we walked just under a mile across the top of the dam to the other side. It was steady... More

we arrived about an hour before sunset and walked around the park. if you are military, you can enter on that side of the park-- which stays open longer. then we had a campfire and snacks--- while enjoying the beautiful sunset and stars. lovely area--- nicely developed and maintained with restrooms, areas for campfire, picnic tables with covers, and campsites.
