This place was very disappointing. They have roped off a beautiful lake into a 30ft × 20ft swimming area which was quite crowded. If you have very young children and don't want to watch them yourself, a good dog would be able to save them in this tiny area of allowed wading. Why even have lifeguards? I don't think the water inside the roped area was deeper that three feet. For I guy who grew up swimming in the ocean, where lifeguards let you go thirty yards out into a roaring surf because they know they can save you, this swimming area felt ridiculously claustrophobic and overly protective. I tried to leave and was told there were no refunds. Although listed as a state park they do not accept the Empire Pass and charge $15 per car. This is a must skip. Dobt waste your time.
Pretty cold 9/8 but clean and beautiful.
