So many types of parks together here that there is something for everyone. We walked, fed some creatures, ran, slid/played in the park then went to the water park.

Visited this Park as I was traveling to Glacier. The lake is the largest lake west of the Mississippi. Lots of boating and fishing. Surrounded by cherry orchards. Natural beauty. Camping nearby.
