Just beautiful! This trail is NOT for the faint of heart....its for those who... More

This park is beautiful! The beach and swimming area is wonderful and there are plenty of picnic tables in shaded areas, but get there early if going on a Saturday as they do eventually get filled. I've never camped there but I know there's a decent camp ground. There's a nice trail around the lake and a playground for young... More

This is really a nice park. Sand beach makes it fun for games. The water is cold because the water comes from streams. If you like camping and fishing, they have camping spots and the lake and streams are good for fishing.
