Very scenic backdrop of mountains as you enter the driveway to the gardens. Good for bird spotting and a walk around the lake. Free to visit.

This is a 400 acre botanical garden with easy walking paths and large grassy areas. There is a visitors center, a covered picnic area and rest rooms. On the weekend there is camping and "catch and release" fishing.
