We rented a pontoon boat, received excellent advice from employees about fishing gear etc. The rental rates were very reasonable. The rain came in about 1 hour after we set out. Too bad it didn't have tarps to close us in. Would have been relaxing...More

We rented poles and bought gear for trout fishing. Worker there gave a lot of good info on where to go and how to have the best luck. Kids caught fish so the advice worked. I'd go there again.

Most tourist places really gouge you but not here. Prices for boat rentals are very reasonable. Get there early in the morning for best experience and views.

Kids loved renting the bikes and pedal car, the 5 person pedal car is really hard to pedal going uphill so we wished everyone would have go regular bikes. Also rented the kayak. Rental was super easy and fast.

People often fish here, and some are rather careless with their lines, swinging them over the path while passers-by take walks. It can get windy here at times, as well, so worth noting that you might need a jacket even if it is warm when...More
