“Love to kayak or fish?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

I return to this place numerous times during the spring, summer and fall just to kayak. it is gorgeous and the admission fee is very reasonable considering you can pay one fee for everyone in your car. The surroundings are gorgeous, kayaking is terrific, and you can also bring a canoe or your own boat. It's also known for good fishing and there's a campground with lots of shaded sites.

“Great Local Getaway”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2013

My husband and I went camping with friends close to home because they have a young daughter and were worried she wouldn't make it through the weekend (she did!). The site was large, the water is beautiful and the beach is fun. Make sure you get a site towards the edge though because middle camp sites don't have any trees and are in the sun all day.

“Just a nice afternoon stroll.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013

Had some spare time that afternoon, so I decided to stop here and just take a nice quiet walk. Sun was shining and the park, not yet open for swimming, was nice and quiet.

“a quite get away place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

Nice country area. Leaves , historical places. The old windmill, was really an attraction. Washington town was 20 min away . We went for a visit to the famous old army catholic church. If you're looking for a quiet place this is the right one for a get away.
