What can I say? We don't have lakes like this in Missouri! What a beautiful park. There is swimming and trails and picnicking. You could easily spend the whole day or week there! It was not too crowded in October when we went. We came in from the South Entrance and the trees were so pretty decked out in fall.... More

The trail around the lake is very easy, but I am sure there are other trails that are... More

This place is always busy. It is mecca for outdoor enthusiasts. It is always busy. Great Nature trails. Note this is not rugged hiking They are all well maintained trails around two lakes. There are more rugged trails off the back side of round lake (the second lake). Note grab a map if you will venture beyond the two lakes.... More

This is one of my favorite places to play in New York, and I'm lucky enough to have it just a few miles from where I live. Leave your ball retriever home, there are no water holes here. The course goes through rolling hills and finishes off at a newly remodeled clubhouse the offers one of the best views you... More
