We have hiked here often and bring our dogs- as long as they are on a leash. There is a boat launch where dogs can be off leash to swim here.

A fee to enter park. Bring picnic and swim gear and spend the day in the shaded picnic area. Lifeguard on duty and markers keep swimmers safe.
Also drive beyond swim area and you can put in a small boat in the lake. It's a small body of water so kayaking, canoeing are best.

I've been coming here since I was a kid. It I is a true gem. Beautiful campground, hiking trails, lake and beaches.

Good spot for a hot day. Pretty State Forest with a beach, very family friendly. There were 2 lifeguards, the water was refreshing and shallow enough to be great for the kids.
Nice walking paths through the woods an around the lake.

We don't live far from the DAR. The camper's only beach was fantastic. We went in early June, so the water was a little cold. Fishing on the lake was superb even if you are just fishing from shore. No motorized boats so it doesn't get crazy like other State Park with public beaches. Caught bass, perch and several different species of sunfish. If you have bikes- bring them. Our son rode his bike on the roads non-stop for 3 hours. We liked it so much we are going back 2 more times in August. We had site 22 which was good. Try to stay away from 21 since it is right next to a bathroom. Recommend this place for any campers.
