Long waits in the summer if you plan on bringing a boat, especially if you come on the weekends. Very dirty water. Fun to fish in but I don't recommend eating fish from here.

Again a great place to chill, take in nature, great walking trails in wooded areas. Daily viewings of either deer, coyote, or birds of prey. Great place to unwind from daily hustle of our busy lives.

What a fun time on this little gem of a lake fishing for trout and walleye. Kinda of in the middle of the city but once on the lake you kinda forget that with great views of the Rocky Mountains as your back drop.

We visit several times a year and sometimes forget how much traffic it gets on the weekends. Biking is extremely popular there and boating is out of control. Huge boats going in circles in a bathtub. But there are hiking trails and a dog walking...More

As said in the previous answer, no direct views of the lake from the RV sites. The lake is within walking distance and the park itself has many other amenities.
