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
