It was pretty hot. Not to many people out. People were fishing and playing in the water. The water was a little cold but not to bad. The game and fish seemed like they were looking at every one So don't be riding dirty. I forgot weed is not legal there and started smoking and game and fish saw me and kinda told me no smoking. Wasn't sure if he meant stop smoking weed or just in general don't be smoking in park. Whatever reason I put the joint up. But dude seemed cool.
This was a pretty nice state park to visit. I liked that I could bring my leashed dogs (though they wished they could have gone in the reservoirs, but no big deal). I drove up from CO and liked that it was a pretty short drive to get there. I saw a coyote, which was cool.
