Nice scenery, golf nearby. Trails and a lake, as well as other opportunities for fun. Not sure if rafts can be taken.

“Nice place as a destination for a bike ride”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2014

We like to take the bike trail that leads to this place. Very idyllic and shadowed most of the time. The lake area is very relaxing after the ride. We usually pack a light picnic and it and rest there before heading back.

“Beautiful lake- close to home”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2014

We venture here often as it is close to home. The lake is beautiful and spacious, the area is sprawled with grills, tables, shelters and good walking trails. Our son loves to play near the water and watch the fisherman at work. There is no swimming in the lake and water should not be ingested due to Microcystin produced by algae. We sometimes take a canoe out on the lake, the boathouse is open during the spring and summer months.

“Spacious and uncrowed gem in the middle of Rockville.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014

I love the picnic shelters here. You have to pay the county to reserve the shelters for your event or family gathering but if you are willing to take the "risk" of just looking for one that is not reserved, you may be lucky and get a great spot for free.
