Beautiful lake with surrounding trees. Nice beach area and playground. Water was a comfortable temperature. It's a lake so don't expect clean water, it may discolor a white swimsuit.

Rented the basic camping cabin which had 2 bunk beds, table with chairs, a fan, light and electricity. Outside there's a fire pit with a picnic table and two rocking chairs. We were in walking distance to the bathrooms/showers. Really quiet and peaceful at night!...More

My daughter did a Triathlon at this park. The facilities are very nice. The areas to view the activities were adequate. So, I enjoyed being in this area. And my daughter completed her Tri with confidence & aplomb. A very nice facility.

I am sorry about the water issue over the weekend. I just wanted to explain that the issue is not that we aren't willing to spend the money but that we are having trouble getting the problem solved. The current theory is that the earthquake...More

We went early in the season and walked a great deal of the trails. They are well maintained and not too challenging, but provided a great variety of scenery. Great Day!
