Top 5 Things To Do

  1. Try your luck fishing on one of the three fishing piers located throughout the park, or relax at the Lakeview Overlook by the campground.
  2. Visit our CCC structures like the picnic shelter and boathouse, which were built in the 1930s and are still in use today.
  3. Participate in or watch one of the many fishing and disc golf tournaments held throughout the year.
  4. Spend the day out on our 160-acre lake, Lake View. Rent a boat, canoe, kayak, pedal boat, or stand-up paddle board for fishing and sightseeing, or bring your own to launch from our ramp.
  5. Bring your kids out to play on either of the two playgrounds, while the family enjoys a picnic along the lakeshore.
