Great beach with warm water and a swimming area. Great for kids and families. Well equipped boating rental and a beautiful lake. Restrooms and showers (cold water only) could be improved, though

Amazing to still see activity here even during the winter. The quietness of this area despite lots of people out and about. Easy to walk and talk here too. Enjoy the scenery with those you care about.
