The park is a nice place to get away, take a walk, pray, or just sit and look out over the lake. Flat walk path with shelters. Pleasant in the evening as the sun sets over the water.

During the week it was not crowded. On the weekend it was very crowded with no empty spots. We booked 2 months in advance and could not get a pull thru spot. The laundry mat was very nice. Showers were nice, but nothing to set...More
