  • It's always a great experience in Jones Lake State Park. The benches right under the shade on a hot sunny day is the perfect chill spot. The kids enjoy their time as well. You can play many games in the open green grass areas. Also the convenience of the concession shop is the cherry on top.
  • Great place to just relax. Lots of shade trees. You can bring the meat to be grilled, and also cool and refreshing drinks. The water is soothing. The best place to be.
