They have a lot of spots that are mostly wooded. The lake and beach area are really nice. My only complaint would be with so many spots, it can seem crowded.

Can we take our dog on all of the hiking trails. I know they say alcohol is prohibited. How much do they inforce it though. I like to have a few beers when I'm on vacation.

If you look in the dumpster at the end of the weekend, you'll see bags of beer cans. I have heard of people getting in trouble but if you put it in something like an insulated coffee mug you should be fine.
