Checked this park out for kayaking and it looks great. Big lake, Eel Lake, with a boat ramp at the park. The park has fish ladder and trap so when the salmon are spawning they can capture the eggs used at the hatchery.

Oh, wow, they've made some improvements since our last visit! New paved walkways, new tables with cement slabs underneath, and a sandy beach area. It was relaxing. We went towards the end of afternoon, and took a bubble wand. The bubbles floated lazily above Eel...More
