Cunningham Lake was a stop on a three-week cross country trip for us. It was meant to be a layover before heading into Colorado the next day. A layover is exactly the feel we got from this park. From the campground that we stayed in, there wasn't a whole lot to do. There were signs against swimming in the lake.... More

This place is seriously sketchy, avoid it. Its mostly for fishing and other than the boat ramp area, there are plenty of creeps cruising around. Not anywhere to be alone and there are many better choices.

I am disgusted by trying to enjoy a nice lake by my home and always finding single men parked in cars obviously looking to hook up with each other. I mean, get a room! It makes me uncomfortable which is this opposite feeling I want when trying to relax by the lake.

Try the fishing at this well kept inner city lake. Walking and bike paths available for the health person.

Just a fishing lake. There is only one real area to get too, you can't really walk around it for a good spot.

I found the place very nice although there is no supervision by a camp host or a ranger service. The only source of rules is by the police who come every once in a while to kick people out of the lake. Because there is no rule source the people in the camp create huge fires and smoke marijuana.

Cunningham Lake is great to walk the trails with your dog. There's a paddleboard rental place and they do paddleboard yoga. Great for kayaking. Lots of space to have picnics and run around. You can also bike. It's just nice all around.

We love to stop at north 72nd street KFC and grab a bucket of chicken goodies and stop at the marina for a quick picnic to watch the boats come and go from the marina. They have great picnic tables and its fun to sit and watch everyone on the lake or take in a sunset. Fishing is great too!

Cunningham Lake is a nice place to explore and enjoy the lake. The main trail around the lake is usually not crowded and offers a chance for some birdwatching.

Had a day that 60 degrees a couple of weeks back so loaded up the family (including the two hound dogs) and took a nice walk around the lake. Close to town but feels like you are getting away. We parked on the McKinley side but lots of ways to enter. When we were there it was clean and well... More
