Nice place to visit. Fir a few hours with family. Lots of trails to enjoy around the lake. You can take your dogs with you and give them some exercise as well as yourself. Very scenic and east to get to.

A nice place to go to for kayaking on a pretty lake. Truthfully, I didn't have much time to explore. But I did stay in the PET section which was full of dogs barking and fighting on walks. I also noticed a lot of "don't...More

The water itself was a bit red, but obliviously clean, there were small fishes everywhere. The sand, playground, picnic areas were all maintained. There is no lifeguards, but the water is shallow for quite a bit, so the kids can have fun. Beautiful view and...More

Our family enjoyed our picnic and swimming at the park. The restrooms are very clean and have showers for a small fee. The grandkids played in the lake residue and all, it is lake water. Nice benches and picnic tables.

The park was busy the day we visited. We went to hike. The trail was very easy. We liked the views near the dam. Plenty of people on watercraft. Restrooms were super clean. Many picnics happening.

We spent two nights in a tent here with our dog. Park was quiet and our spot was right near the lake. Bathroom facilities were very clean. The rangers were all very friendly. Site was a decent enough size with plenty of usable space. Picnic...More
