  • We biked every day including when it rained. The park is well maintained and the scenery was amazing! I will definitely be back.  more »
  • Beautiful and plenty to do! Great water views. Plenty of hiking. Lighthouse is fun. If you’re tight on time, you’ll even enjoy a drive through!  more »

  • If you love biking, hiking, or lighthouses you should definitely check this area out. There are some great bike trails with some light hills and fun turns, but nothing to crazy. If your looking for a thrill ride, this isn't exactly the place, but if your riding with the family or as a couple, it is definitely a beautiful ride. There are dedicated hiking trails here as well which do not allow bikes so you don't have to worry about a biker constantly zipping by your yelling "on your left." If you visit, you will also find quite a few lookout points onto the lake that are right off the trails that would be great for taking pictures. There is also a lighthouse that I would recommend checking out .
  • Beautiful. Nature! Hiked the easy trails with the Mrs and 1.5 year old. Quite a lovely place. Really enjoyed the sights, the smell and sound of water gently hitting the shores. I only wish we had more time to spend here
