I love coming here with my family and dogs. It's a great place for mild hiking and spending time outside. I come here often and it never disappoints. It's pretty and clean, making it a great place to go on the weekends with family.

Kitsi and I love to walk around the Lake. It is a nice hike...a few miles...around. Some parts are shady, some are open and sunny. If you want to boat, there are launches and boat rentals. We took the dog in a rowboat once. There is a trail into Rock Creek Park that is about 3 or 4 miles that comes out near Twinbrook. There are covered bbq sites, volleyball sand courts, and even a zipline.

It was a nice surprising find. We first found it when we went zip-lining, which is a business on the property. That was fun, but since we've returned several times with our bows and arrows to take advantage of their archery range. Love the peacefulness of the lake and the other areas (like archery range) for people like me.

Trails are very walkable and definitely not the beaten path. There are open areas surrounded by trees. Sometimes you can rent pedal boats, but check hours and availability if you wan tto do that. You can bike here, bring a frisbee, bring Fido, or just enjoy walking around. There are benches here and there. You cannot swim here (at least not right now).

You don't hear the traffic of Rockville Pike, and you don't feel like you're in a major suburban area. Nice place for fresh air.
