Lots of places to ride your bike through the woods. Water gets pretty low in the summer so the lake is okay for swimming or canoeing but would not recomend it for canoeing. Great place to go for camping though.

This large park (about 4000 acres) is on a large lake and has two nice beaches and picnic areas. I see people fishing here often but not sure they catch anything big; fun for little kids, I guess.
