Great spot for hiking, biking, picnicing, horseback riding, canoeing, kayaking. Beautiful in all weather! Only complaint is that park staff really need to ticket people who drive too fast through the park.

I was looking for a nice hike somewhere close to the city and this looked good. When I got there I found that the hiking trails were not well marked and couldnt find any trail maps so I just walked along the 2.5 mile road that runs around the lake. Not quite what I had in mind but a nice... More

This is family friendly park. It is free entrance. Their lake/beach have ropes and life guard so it is safe for kids. We saw little fish in the water so was exciting for the kids.

This is a beautiful park. It has many hiking trails that take you through different landscapes. There are many erratics and rock formations. Kayaking on olney pond at sunset is a favorite.There is a historical cemetery that the olneys are buried in.There are also ruins throughout the park.

Our family has been enjoying Lincoln Wood for 50+ years. There are great shaded picnic areas with fire pits and nice beaches. There's plenty of spots to relax and spend the afternoon fishing or just walk along the pathways and take in the beautiful woods

Low water quality for swimming as algae blooms when water temps elevate. The state did take down all facilities and are yet to replace them. It is a construction site without much for productivity. The project was to be completed in mid June 2016. As for fishing, there are some trout and carp there but not much gets caught. Great... More

We went to the beach for a couple hours to swim and get some sun. Then we rented a canoe for an hour. BEACH: The parking was ample and very close to the beach. There was some construction going on when we went, I'm not sure what they are building but it seems like they are trying to add more... More
