All the washrooms were locked!

Did not stay long here as it was closed for the season. Wanted to use the washroom but even the Portaloo was locked!

My daughters and I were looking for a beach close to the resort we were staying at and found that this was only 15 minutes away. Beautiful grassy hill leading down to a small, clean beach. The beach wasn't actually open yet, but the park employee cleaning the area said it was fine to sit on the sand. There were... More

We were looking for a place to picnic and headed for Lake Superior. Upon arrival, it was so crowded, there wasn't even a parking space (on a Sunday). We drove another few feet and low and behold, there was another park, with free parking (as opposed to Superior, where there was an admission fee). We had a nice enjoyable picnic.

Not much to do here, so if all you wish to do is lay back and watch a small lake, this is your spot! Limited facilities in my opinion, as it is a small park.

Lots of great fishing, clean shores and water. Lots of trails to hike around the lake and surrounding area. Close enough to Bethel Woods to hear free concert music!

dirty facilities. It used to be much cleaner and the staff seemed to care more. the "beach" area needs more sand and revamping. It just stopped being fun to go anymore. Plus the lake water was not clean.

this could be a nice place, but just too many people had started to use it as their personal park. No one clean up after themselves and the place is starting to look like a garbage dump. The people are rude.
