Just drove through briefly, didn't see anything worth exploring further. Locals seemed to use the swimming and picnicking facilities.

This lake is much smaller than Mirror Lake but it has much more to offer. There is a good sized beach, kayak rentals, food stands, a concessions building with food, a gift shop and decent bathrooms. There is also a Nature center. There are two access areas. The north area has all the above. The south area is mostly just... More

Beautiful state park. Loved the tumbled rocks trail (easy). We arrived early on Saturday morning (8:30ish) and the parking lot was practically empty ... by the time we were done with hiking (12:00ish) the lot was full ... arrive early on summer weekends.

I have to say, we LOVED this park. It's gorgeous and offers so many activities. I highly recommend coming for a day trip or a camping trip.

Getting to this park is a 2 hour drive, but it is always worth it. Great hiking and very clean swimming beach. Families with young children will love the cute little nature center. We went camping there the week after the 4th of July and the campground was only about half full.
