My husband and I love coming here. We have made our plans for kayaking and picnicking soon. Very friendly and knowledgeable park staff. Winter Spring Summer or Fall! Always a fun place to visit. Rentals for kayaks and bikes. You can't go wrong.

We often go here to hike. It's a 5 mile walk and I often see families walking, running and riding their bikes. I brought my dog here and she loved it as well. It's so close to home and there's lots of parking available.

It's very big grounds for biking and hiking into the woods around the reservoir. They need to have bike rentals. A beach sandy area to be able to go into the water would be nice also. Been here many times walking the dog. Nice place...More

The loop around the reservoir is a bit more than 5 miles, but there's no need to complete the loop if you'd like a shorter walk. While the terrain doesn't vary much, it's a pleasant hike on a level and well-maintained path. Plus, an added...More

This is a magnificent outdoor activity center. 5 mile hiking or biking trail. Rent kayaks. A very beautiful getaway. In the winter they have a roaring fireplace with an area to have a picnic. Eat right along the water.

A direct call would be best. But I do believe you should have access around main building.
