There is a wonderful new walking path along the lake that goes the entire length of the park and you can climb to the top of the light house and overlook the lake.

I drive through it every chance I get to look at the beautiful lighthouse and outstanding views of Lake Winnebago. There are many interesting events. A great place to stop and let the world go by.

A very nice, large, park, Well laid out. Family friendly. Usually a nice quiet park. The one downside, the waste water utilities are on the western side. West wind will not be your friend
