This is technically my second time at this park. About a year ago we launched our Kayaks from below this dam. So we used the park for our toilet duties. But this weekend we specifically went to this park to launch our kayaks in the "lake" behind the Morgan Falls dam. My understanding is that this was originally just going to be dog walk area, but as they cleared out brush the realized how close the lake is so the plans changed. The park has playground stuff for the kids, really nice playground stuff. Plus a nice toilet, and pavilion area. Lots of picnic tables. But we went for the launch area. You gotta park on top of the hill, which is where the park is, then carry your yaks down a fairly long hill to get to the floating dock to launch your boats. No boatramp, just the floating dock. So not the best but was not intended to be a yak launch either. To be so close to town, and have a place you can launch your boat, and do some fishing is great. Now keep in mind that you need to be prepared for the DNR. I've not had my fishing license checked in many many many years. I always have it but never get checked. In this little lake, all 4 of us got checked by the DNR who was patrolling the area in a boat. No big deal, just doing their job. They were very polite and helpful so just make sure you are legal.
