I visited last July and spent an afternoon paddle boating around Waller Mill Park and had a blast! It's beautiful! It's not very big - but you can spend some time exploring the water and that makes a lot of difference. It's only a few dollars to park and rent a paddle boat and it's worth the trip. There are...

Best Kayak rate at $5.00 an hour. HUGE HUGE Lake. There were people out fishing too and they were catching things. You can also rent Jon boats and Canoes. Very quiet and peaceful, and great service. Easy to get too and its not so crowded that you can't enjoy it. Cheap outdoor adventure without the crowds!

This is a great park if you want some simple hiking, geocaching, boating or disc golf! We did a super fun mystery geocache my kids loved! Definitely will be back next time we visit!

Lovely quiet park with trails and a number of boating opportunities. However, their newly developed and advertised disk golf course is a "big disappointment."

Our family rented a motorboat then had lunch and hiked on the trails. Easy rentals, very friendly staff. Lots of inlets to explore on the water and cool tunnel to go through to the other side of the reservoir. Nice picnic areas and hiking trails.

I had a great afternoon and evening here, very clean. Only caught bluegills, but the pier is new ( should be a little longer though). Very nice for people with kids

Went with a group of 8 of us and each had our own kayak. The weather was perfect and the water was calm. We saw a lot of turtles. The price was very reasonable, $5 for an hour and $2 to park the car. Staff was very friendly and they have a launch for the kayaks.

My family of 7 came here. Its a very nice clean place. Workers are friendly and helpful. They have different boats to rent, places to hike and frisbee golf. We decided to have a picnic then try the golf. I didn't know what to expect being none of us had ever played before. There are 2 different distances you can... More

This is a nice park for walks in nature. There is frisbee golf, kayaking, paddle boats, and a Fishing dock all for a fee of course. The walks are free though except for the $2 parking fee.

Kayaked today on Waller Reservoir. Had a great time. Boat rentals have resumed after a break for dock construction. The boat rentals are inexpensive and the reconstructed dock area is great. Super new roller system for kayak launch. Staff was welcoming and accommodating.
