  • The lake looked like fun to kayak on and the hiking trails were easy peasey! The staff were friendly and covered all info we needed.  more »
  • Was in the area cycling and enjoyed the lake views. Note that the park itself restricts cycling in most hiking trails. The area is rich with its own history.  more »
  • A very nice place. Has a few boat ramps and rentals. Walking trails and of course, the reason for our visit, a love sign. My only complaint is that we had to pay 2 dollars for parking for a 5 minute visit to take pictures of the love sign. We have been to many love signs and i dont remember having to pay to see one before. If we visit this place again, we will make sure to plan for a longer stay.
  • Beautiful and serene. My husband and I were able to have a nice morning out on the water, take a hike out on one of the trails and all for only $10 because we got the two person kayak for $8 and paid the $2 for parking. The staff was very friendly, Dylan was a great guide getting us in and out of the water. The current brought us right back to the docks so we didn't have to worry about getting tired and not having the energy to get back. We had a great morning here
