This is one of those spots that leaves you in awe of its natural beauty. This is a great place to take photos. There are hiking trails, picnic facilities, and boat ramps. No motorized boats are allowed. It is not unusual to see sail boats, kayaks, and canoes. Camping is allowed. It costs $2 to bring your car in. Many people park in a pull off, with parking for a few cars, right off of highway 89. From there, you can hike down to the lake. It is a very short distance.

Great for hiking, biking and kayaking. Much more to it than you initially see when entering the park. Don't be fooled. It is beautiful the farther you go back into the Granite Dells

Beautiful rock formations with a pretty lake. Lots of gazebos for gatherings. There is a place where you can rent kayaks.
Brought our two dogs, they loved playing in the lake.Will be going back.

We were staying at a nearby campground, which had a hiking trail that leads you into this park. We were amazed on the beauty of the park and the unique landscape. We discovered additional trails that surround the lake. Lots of amazing sights to see while hiking these long trails.

Close to town, a city park, a wonderful path to hike around the lake, stunning rock formations and tons of birds - a great place to get away and relax. There is also a dock and I do believe there is fishing in that lake. I enjoyed a hike on a marked trail, over boulders and between, with peek a boo views of the lake along the way. Gorgeous.
