If you're planning to fish from the shore at the reservoir, wear hiking boots. When the water level is low, the 45 degree angle slope is very slippery from the loose dirt and rocks. You could easily slide right down into the water. It's not...More

From my childhood, this has been a place to go to relax. You can hike, sit in or near the stream, enjoy the lake, and much more. Bicycle, walk, or drive your choice.

First of all i didn’t visit here at a right season/ time, the car park is totally empty . Due to government shutdown, nobody is collecting fee. I think it’s a good place to visit for those who doesn’t want to travel far
