  • Great state park to enjoy camping, non-motorized water sports, and swimming. There is no swimming on Monday and Tuesday’s currently as no life guards on staff during those days. You pay $10 to enter. Put down a $40 deposit for kayaks/pedal boats/paddleboard/canoes. Every hour is $10. So great concept of getting money back if only out for an hour. Love the system they have.
  • It is a very nice place to hang out. Camping here is tough during the summer, because of the demand to come here. Very nice.
