This is a small park but with beautiful lake and scenery. Recommend to visit here in Pioneer day. Only spend $5 for parking fee and you can play for half days....

This park has camping. It has pioneer cabins and a authentic covered bridge. It has a lot of great photo opportunities. It has a small beach and swimming in the lake during the summer.
