  • Decent waterfront park. Can get crowded for parking but decent amount of space with tables and grassy areas to set up your own spot once you're there. There are a few trails to explore but no long hikes or anything like that by any means. Good for a quick dip and to hang out or BBQ.
  • Great state park that I've been visiting since I was a kid. Spaces are large for trailers, not camping right on top of other people. My family also enjoys the swimming area and paddling options with our kayaks.
