This is a beautiful park and dog friendly. Lovely walk around the lake and the views are spectacular. Plan an 1-2 hours if you are going to hike. Otherwise, 1 hour is plenty of time to take some pictures and enjoy the beauty.

There were people wading in the upper lake (not sure of the name) as it is deeper but not really deep. Very cold mountain water though! 😊
