Drove down Geddie Road from SR90 and we never found an entrance sign! Need better signage for visitors to the area.

A great place to picnic, hike, or fish. There are plenty of docks and a boat ramp as well. Dogs are allowed on leashes and there are plenty of trails as well. Limited facilities, but there are restrooms, covered tables, and grills to use.
