Water was down when I visited and it is not much to see, but if you want to walk or fish great. Go here if you want a quiet moment

This place has a few small hiking trails but nothing spectacular. The fishing is just okay, I usually don't catch anything when I go. I do like the location, it is nestled back away from everything and the people that I encounter are usually friendly....More

This park offers fishing and hiking around the lake. It also serves as an outdoor environmental classroom, with some interpretative displays here and there. It's a really good place to take smaller kids and let them stretch their legs.

This is a great place to get out and walk in nature. They have a asphalt path along you can walk or go around the pond on a dirt path.

This is a lovely spot on a small lake, usually not too many people around. There is a great hiking trail with lots of neat features and if you are a bird watcher, a lot of different birds you may see.

Learn about the water cycle and enjoy some outdoors. You can fish, hike, or just mellow down in a very pleasant setting. The lake has some decent fishing.
