  • Great hidden gem. This place came recommended to take the dog and we all had a blast. Quick hike to the lake and had the beach to ourselves except for a few people walking by. Highly recommended.  more »

  • Great, beautiful, & scenic area for walking, hiking, biking and swimming. The Main beach area was nice, a little bit small. But, you can go nearby to the first trail head on the right and there are many areas that branch off that have small sandy and fantastic swimming areas. I took my 2 daughters (10 & 13) and dog and we ventured a short way off the path and had our very own swimming area. The water was clean and not weedy. Note: Dogs are not allowed in the main beach swimming area. We had excellent time and picked up after ourselves and our pet. We had people to the right of us who did the same. **I hope people continue to be responsible and pick up after themselves and their pets as this was a great find to be able to have the whole family (dog included) enjoy the water on a hot day.
  • Gorgeous little park that also leads into an absolutely beautiful lake that you can swim into. We didn't swim this time, only walked but I'll definitely want to return here sometime to do so. Breathtaking views
