Nice sand and water and a grass area with tables but very busy. The parking lot is always full so go early. No other services or stores nearby.

Clean, beautiful, sandy beach. Lots of picnic tables on a huge grassy space. Also includes an amazing dog beach right around the corner by the public boat launch. Could use more parking spots on weekends. Come early for a good spot.

This Park has a wonderful sandy beach, many picnic tables scattered throughout open grassy areas & shady forest spots, & as well, it has taps for washing. However, dogs are not allowed on the beach; this is for the health & enjoyment of everyone!

We came looking for a beach for the small grandchildren. Well, this works very well. Nice sand and good swimming area. There are toilets on site. Picnic tables and lots of shady places. Really enjoyed our visit.
