The Lake is beautiful, there are trails around that are great hiking, some beautiful scenery. A nice place to relax and get away from the city. I understand fireworks over the lake are incredible on the 4th of July.
My wife, 14 year old son and I stayed at the park for 1 day on a Saturday and then camped over night. The campsite was well maintained and very large. There was a fire ring with a grate and a picnick table, I think that's standard. We stayed at site 49. The bathroom was close by and clean. The... 更多
I thought the park was ok. Camping was an average camp site. You are right next to the person next to you and for us, that meant right next to a really large and loud group. The trails are good for a walk and day trip. Nothing to do or see that would take more than a few hours.
I have been our a few times to run the trails and they are great - challenging enough to get a good workout but also short enough that you don't have to worry about getting lost! Great little place to get away from it all!

If you are in moderate shape from taking daily walks you will be fine. The park was beautiful with the river and canyon. River... 更多
We went on a nice late September Sunday afternoon and really enjoyed the peaceful, woodsy trails. However, we took one trail (Primrose) that left us with the choice of either turning back (retrace steps) near the end or cross the river at a shallow point, but without enough river rocks poking out to avoid plunging feet in. There was also... 更多
Decided to check this park out over Memorial Day weekend. We left the hotel early in the morning and were at the main parking lot just after 8:00. We decided to check out the various trails - the park brochure says they average about 1.5 miles, and that seems long after doing them (we did all five in a few... 更多
