There were walking trails and areas that you could kayak or canoe. We drove into subdivision of Tiger Creek, offering large lots, places you can horse back ride for... More

Great fun and picnicked. Group of 15 canoes went and five kayaks. We called in advance to reserve them for our wedding weekend and everything went very smoothly.
