Facilties are great, always ample parking and accessible picnic areas. Great trails for hiking, running, or walking. There is almost always a nice breeze, so it is refreshing in the heat of the summer. We have a great time every time.

The scenic lake with affordable restaurants on shore is also great for jogging and especially for bicycling and skateboarding. Sailing and windsurfing might be also available, probably for a fee.

We have walked and biked around the lake. We have eaten diner and watched the sun set. We have had family get togethers and enjoyed drives around the lake.
