What a wonderful place to enjoy on a sunny summer's day! We drove slowly through the park in the morning and parked the car to stroll the paths by the lake. Later we walked on the beach watching the children playing in the water. Next time we will rent bicycles as numerous folks were biking along the paths. It's a... More

Spectacular, sandy beaches - and warm summer water! Take a drive up the entire length of the penninsula and visit all of the beaches before you choose one.

We visited the lake on a sunny, windy day. The waves were great and everything was very clean. We rented a surrey bike, and went around the peninsula. Very pretty, with lots of trees. Definitely a must see if your in the area.

Relax on one of the many beaches, walk or ride your bike on one of the trails. Enjoy the magical sunsets on the lake side. Gaze across the bay at the city. Swimming, fishing, picnicking. And it is all free to the public! Other places I have been charge to go in state parks and beaches.

What a treasure with varied scenery and wildlife, this "almost an island" is well maintained with great vistas and ample parking. A true hidden gem right out there in the lake, 15 minutes from downtown.
