There's a lot to do here and it's dog friendly. There's hiking trails, swimming, picnic areas, and camping.

Very pretty park wrapped around several small lakes. Has horse trails, boat ramps, marina, and of course hiking trails. Very well maintained. Went there on a weekday and it was still fairly busy. A little too crowded for my preference.

They have a bunch of kicking trails and the lake isn't to cold at any time of the year so kids can wade in it. The pool gets a little crowded but they place is great.

Could be a little tough, loop b is wooded and tighter, than say loop d. Loop 59, 63, that area would be easier. If you aren't happy, they may let you move to an overflow area, if they are fully booked.

I think it is 17.00 for first hour and 10.00 for every hour after. Tandem kayaks are more, but I am not sure of the price. I have my own kayak, so I had to pay to launch for a year.
