  • Absolutely love this place. Beautiful view and the doggo had a blast playing fetch and swimming in the lake. They have doggy bags and bins available in the parking lot and bathrooms. Well maintained and clean!
  • The hike around the lake is just over 1.5 miles with minimal elevation so this was a great start for a beginner. Lots of dogs and families were near the water edge. Mostly covered do easy to manage when it gets hot.
