Nice park with both paved and hard packed trails around the lake, right in town, but feels quiet, even though many people use it.

I can’t believe I live so close to this gem. I love running the different courses, and there’s some elevation/inclines to help with training. Rent out kayaks, canoes, a local swimming hole (seasonal), camping, and so many trails to hike/run. The fishing is great too! It may vary of course, but it’s such a great experience. Great family fun for everyone.
Nice calm atmosphere. The Rough Go trail is exactly how it sounds like. The entire trail is paved with rough rocks. You will find many cyclists along the path. I was able to see deers, wild turkeys, geese and California King snake along this trail. Not the most exciting, but good for a good walk.
