Lake built by the Army Corp of Engineers. Very good sized, very calm. Rent a paddle boat? Yup, they have it. Walk the trails? Yup, the trails are there. Lots to do, and friendly service. It's close to home for us. Great place to visit.

Memorial lake is nice if you just want a nice day fishing or hiking around the lake. It does have pavilions and canoe rentals. I wish it allowed motorized boats but the lake is a bit small for that. But all in all it is...More

Its a well kept small park. There are picnic tables and plenty of parking - easy in/out access. They provide bathrooms and have minimal trails, good for short strolls but not hard core hiking.

Wife and I enjoyed a walk around the Lake with our Shitzu TJ and saw many wildlife such as rabbits, catbirds, barn swallows, blue jays and several raptors that were out fishing on the lake. Nice place to keep your boat.

The view of the lake is beautiful, did some fishing, mostly caught sunnys. Nice trails to walk on and beautiful scenery. I'm also a geocacher so took a walk around for that and besides it being a little muddy (because of storms the night before)...More

We don't live too far from the lake, so we go back pretty regular to walk. Most times you see wildlife. There are deer and wild turkeys. The scenery is so nice and it's very peaceful while walking.

This is a beautiful place to spend time with the family either by hiking, biking, exercising, or playing. There's a lot of areas that you can enjoy under the sun or in the shade. They have picnic tables throughout. The lake is there for fishing...More
