A nice lake for fishing. Electric motors only. Many hiking trails and a restaurant and winery. Nice shaded campsites, many with electric.

Went there for lunch. Will try dinner sometime. Food was good and a nice view of the lake. Service was decent and friendly. Winery was overpriced.

We really enjoyed our afternoon at this park. Rode the bike here on a Sunday afternoon and enjoyed hiking the beautiful trails. The trail that skirts the lake is absolutely beautiful. I would recommend this park to anyone who loves nature. 5 stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

This is a nice wooded park. The campgrounds and picnic areas are shaded and well maintained. There is a small lake that offers good fishing. No motors allowed on boats. Trails are available for hiking.

Great view with a nice meal. It's great that the restaurant and winery are open again! Look over the lake while you enjoy dinner or a glass of wine.

This is a well-kept park with clean camping spots [tents and campers alike] as well as a great younger child friendly park/playground.
