  • Good, calm place to relax. Air is much better compared to urban area. Several picnik areas to choose from. Convenient 3.3 miles trail (asphalt) around the lake. Rental equipment is available. Skiing in the winter.
  • City park amenities with camping. Boat rentals, playground, snacks at visitors center in the one hand. Camp sites, beach, hiking trails, and accessible nature on the other hand. Perfect for new and young campers. An affordable way to spend two days as a family.
