What a lovely spot. We went to the park for a picnic. There are many picnic tables and benches. The it's also a very clean bathhouse. Lots of parking. The beach was closed to swimming but we knew this based on their website.

This is a wonderful park with long walking trails near and on the water. Markers along the trails tell of the foliage and it is good in all seasons. There are no facilities to speak of. Bring your own lunch and kids and pets.
