It is very pretty here. Great trails. Very spacious. Bus goes there. Great place to spend the day to relax. Terrific festivities. Tragically, the beach is down river from treatment plant. It will never be clean.

Beach, island, park, camping site- pretty much everything!!! Worth the drive that's for sure. It's spacious and not busy at all. There are some trails as well for hiking. 100% would recommend.
