The lake is nice and they have rentals for water fun. It can get creowded and busy on the weekends, so go early if you want a good spot by the lake. They also have spot for archery.

BCLP is a great place for a wide variety of activities, from family fun to nature watching. There is a beach with boat rentals for family activities to trails winding through a variety of natural habitats for the nature-mined.

Hi! I have seen dogs on SUP boards but I'm not entirely sure that they're allowed to swim. I'm sorry I can't be more help.
