We love the park. It’s clean and has so many things for families: beach, picnic area, playground, hiking, fishing and boating! Plus showers are available after a fun-filled day. We try to go every weekend during the summer.

No, it is not and there are no swimming signs posted. Besides the boat traffic, there are areas with underwater growth that is dangerous. It’s always a good idea to check with a Ranger each visit.
