There are hiking and biking trails throughout the park. It has a good view of the Dam. Harrison bay State Park is much prettier.

Good park for family to hang out. It is a little bit north of the city, but it is fun nonetheless. They have a great pool there as well as docks for fishing.

First, I have to say that you shouldn't expect too much help or friendliness from the guys at the entrance of the park. They don't really seem to ever want to offer me some help when I visit and seem un-educated on the park's operation....More

This park, while small, is packed with options. There is a pool, dock for boating or fishing, and places to hike and walk. Or, feel free to sit down and have a nice picnic lunch. It isn't that far out of town.
