The Sandy shoreline and Beach area is very good . Picnic tables are very well covered by oak trees which leaves a lot of shade. Swimming areas slowly tapers off with no abrupt drop offs. Swimming area is also protected by several buoys. That tell the boaters not the inner the swimming area. Parking area is close by right up the little Hill as well as women and men's bathroom and shower
We pulled our camper here for the first time for a family reunion. The lake was beautiful as was the area we set up camp. The rec center that was rented out was quite an amazing building. Overall, I would definitely go back to this area for a quick get away or for another family reunion. My one and only critique would be that the trails were not marked very well so it was a bit confusing to figure out which way to follow. However, the wildflowers completely made the hike worth while.
