The admission to Swallow Falls State Park includes this nice little lake. We rented some kayaks and paddled the lake for about 45 minutes. Saw some deer and the water is not deep or scary. Good spot

We enjoyed the little lake and had a blast. This area is just wonderful to visit. Often not crowded and most are on DCL!

Many trails to walk or hike along. Can also bring your pet on a leash. Concession stand by the beach. Life guard also. If you want to take a nice walk. Not elevated at all. You may see some wildlife also.

With a cabin rental you get 1 free hour per day. If not renting or if you want more not sure of exact price but is not expensive.
