“Save your gas and time!”
Reviewed August 14, 2013

After driving down a horrible road with big holes caused by wash out we finally arrive to Lake Leatherwood and the so called city park. What a let down! A few old broken swings, somewhat of a grassy area and an ugly lake. There were some small cabins for rentals and a few small boats at the docks-hopefully there is some good fishing on this lake because as for the park area it stinks. Was very disappointed !

“Terrible”
Reviewed August 12, 2013

The road was hard to drive - pot holes all over and narrow road. The lake was not impressive and the swim area was pitiful and we weren't even sure we saw a swim area. I thought the whole place was run-down and pitiful. Don't waste your time.

Great for all levels of hiking. Also has bike trails. Lake is nice for canoeing. Lots of space for whatever outdoor activity you are interested in!

“Nothing exciting”
Reviewed August 3, 2013

We decided to try the campground. Road was difficult to get down, pulling our fifth wheel camper... Road definitely needs some repair. Small campsites, lake is very small, but overall an okay experience. The ranger ( which I cannot remember her name) was extremely helpful and very friendly. We rented a canoe and paddled the lake, which took about an hour.

“hiking”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

we went to the trail to do some running and found a trail that goes all around the lake. It is a four mile trek around the lake. It was beautiful. The lake has some huge Lilly pads on it.
