  • Great place. Bathrooms and drinking water available but no food/drink for sale (bring your own). Limited parking. Great place for kids, swimming area stays shallow a ways out. Cheap! $4/each adult in the car
  • This is a very hard park to find. Drive slowly along Rt 100 and you will see reservoir road and tucked back about 200 yards is the park entrance. Great swimming and boating. Amazing views. There is a small fee to get in but it is very worth the money.
