Beautiful, relaxing, dramatic. So much in a small area. Don't miss the foresty crevasse side. Great for swimming or just enjoying the view and sun. more »
It is a beautiful park. The signage for the additional parking isn't very clear. It's very clean, a little over crowded but not too bad. The distance for the swim test for kids seems really extreme. It's convenient that the REI boathouse is right there with boat, kayak, SUP rentals. We will definitely be headed back.
Amazing new park that has everything. The park has a restrooms which are very clean. it has lots of benches and walkways. The views are amazing from several spots. it even has a cool pier that you can fish from. Don't forget your swimsuit, it has a beach too.
