  • Very serene and a lovely place to take your dog on a walk. My dog and I head out here once or twice a month to enjoy the 3 mile hike around the lake. Even on a busy Saturday morning it's never too crowded. I wish their parking lot by the kayak rental place was bigger but you can usually find a spot in the overflow lot if you get there before 9am on Saturday. Good luck finding one after that though!
  • Nice park to walk/run/walk your dog. You have to pay to launch your own kayak. Not worth it. Lake is incredibly small. I did the entire thing in probably 40 min. It'd be fine if it was free to kayak. But the fact that they charge you... :(
