  • Great park for kids to play on the beach, go for a swim, kayak, and fish. We didn't catch any fish large enough to keep but it was fun regardless. This is a great low key spot that is set apart from Deep Creek. We ended up returning for a second day. There is a small older playground, trails, and many picnic tables in the sun or shade.
  • Awesome place to take the family! Beautiful public beach with a roped off swimming area for kids and they have kayak and paddleboard rentals. We will definitely be back!
