Very pretty park. The lake is nice. There are lots of restrooms which is great with small kids. You can fish without a license and they even loan poles if you don't have your own. The staff is super nice, informative and helpful.

The last time I was there, the park did not have rock climbing equipment. I was told recently that has changed. If not, is there a company you can rent equipment and hire a guide?

I think you have to bring your own but a guide will help you.
