NOBODY was swimming. There were 2 guys kayaking. A few people were at one of the picnic sites. They have a couple of bathrooms. We didn't see everything, but we did drive around a bit. Still a nice place to hang out I suppose.

We did not camp but just spent a lovely 3ish hours hiking to the top of Bald Mountain and back down. Physically it is not a very difficult hike; it goes up a bit steeply in some places and provides a nice little workout. Beautiful...More

Entrance from Rt. 30 is on dangerous curve of busy highway, very narrow roads, NO camping other than primitive. Very little parking where picnic tables and gazebo are situated. Very RV / motorhome unfriendly. Skip this one!
