As mentioned by some of the other reviewers, this park is located very near to at least one, perhaps two, firing ranges. The sound of gunfire is loud and distracting and is the only reason I didn't give this park 5 stars. On the far side of the park the gunfire is so loud that you want to duck and run. Besides the strange gunfire, the park is gorgeous with lots to offer including boat rentals, fishing, large shelters and wonderful trails. Although you will want to just sit and stare at the water all day, don't - instead look for wildflowers and native plants and butterflies lining the water's edge including Joe Pye Weed, Muscadine grapes, Golden Rod, and various asters. Take the trail off to the left of the bathrooms to enter a bamboo forest and access other trails. The park is located directly behind Wendy's - follow the road right next to Wendy's until you see the park parking lot.

This place is great. They've revamped and renovated it in the last few years. You can run or walk around the lake, about 1.5miles. They also have boat and peddle boat rentals as well as kayaks. There are family picnic shelter too for large gatherings and fishing piers as well. This is a great place.

I am travelling with my son who is autistic. Although other reviews mentioned the noise from the range I didn't appreciate it was so close. My son could not cope with the noise and we had to leave soon after arriving. The noise is intrusive.

Great place for our family reunion. Lots of things to do there or just to sit and enjoy the beautiful surroundings.
