  • Great park with a variety of amenities, including hiking, fishing, kayaking/canoeing/paddle-boarding, as well as cycling. A very nice beach for swimming, with small play area, nice picnic facilities, concession food for purchase. Several nice hiking trails that vary in length, with levels of difficulty and accessibility to appeal to a range of visitors. The park staff are knowledgeable, helpful, and accommodating, and they facilitate interesting educational programs. Facilities are well-maintained.
  • Beautiful setting in a big Hemlock forest. Great hiking trails and the fishing isn’t bad either. A great way to send the day appreciating nature at its finest. Parking can be somewhat limited at times.
