Nice little park with concessions and boating. Not the place to go if you are looking for the best walking/running trails, but it's a nice park to take a dog or two.

Lake Wheeler is a nice place to go. It is quiet. Great for boating. Picnicking is great there. The down side is you cant get in the water or catch any decent fish. But if you want a quiet place to picnic, I highly recommend Lake Wheeler. Oh they have a great little playground for the kids and a very nice boat house with rocking chairs on the deck.

A small, intimate area for families. You can rent everything from fishing gear and bait, to canoes and kayaks. Unfortunately, NO SWIMMING. That may be a show stopper for some. Also a fantastic place to have parties......from kids birthday, last day of school, homeschoolers, even lunch breaks! Staffed by relatively young but friendly people. The place is exceptionally clean, and has pavillions with bbq grills to rent (hence the parties :). I believe it also has a separate area for volleyball, and even a small soccer field. Great memories are to be made here.
