Top 5 Things To Do

  1. Spend an afternoon fishing from the bank and pier, or rent a fishing boat equipped with life vests and paddles.
  2. Enjoy a picnic at one of the four picnic shelters or individual picnic tables throughout the park.
  3. Take a walk along one of the 2-mile trails. One goes around the 18-acre lower lake and the other will take you through a diverse hardwood and pine forest.
  4. Take the kids to the playground in the main picnic area and enjoy an afternoon of fun in the sun.
  5. Grab a pair of binoculars and try to spot one of the many varieties of birds that live in the park.
