Clean, beautiful, sandy beach. Lots of picnic tables on a huge grassy space. Also includes an amazing dog beach right around the corner by the public boat launch. Could use more parking spots on weekends. Come early for a good spot.

This Park has a wonderful sandy beach, many picnic tables scattered throughout open grassy areas & shady forest spots, & as well, it has taps for washing. However, dogs are not allowed on the beach; this is for the health & enjoyment of everyone!
