Best selection of trails in the area. Range of trails for all levels of riders. Lots of people walk as well. Nice lake views and access. Only issue is that there are hunters walking around during the season. That’s scary. Bathrooms at the parking.

We booked a campsite at the on-site campground. Perfect for tent camping. Nice 1 mile trail from the campground to the trail head. It's about 1/2 in the woods and 1/2 in a beautiful field. As for the actual trails from the trail head, they...More

There are a number of trails but all also allow bicyclists so beware as some do not know any biking etiquette and suddenly they are right behind you

Lots of hiking and biking trails. A great place to take kids for a hike. The campground as well as several other areas of park was closed. We did go down and sit on a dock and get some pics.
