Just found this spot on my Rand McNally map during my western road trip . Made a one hour stop for a good hike —- managed to play in the mud just a little— actually seems like a fun weekend spa activity for just relaxing

Quiet and Clean. Great place for kids to play and swim and the view is beautiful. Not much in town but for a quiet beach and no crowds it is the best.
