Bicycling
Cycling enthusiasts can enjoy the park's paved roads, though there are no designated bike trails. Safety gear is recommended.

The terrain may be challenging for beginners due to occasional steep inclines and sharp turns.

Riding after dark isn't advised as lighting within the area is limited; daytime biking ensures better visibility of potential hazards.

Remember that cyclists share these routes with motorists so always stay alert and follow traffic rules diligently.

In winter months, cycling might not be feasible because of snow or icy conditions on roadways.

Always check weather forecasts before planning a ride since sudden changes could make paths slippery or dangerous.

Visitor Comments, Memories and Reviews
June 5 closed early summer by tim_x
park review stars; one to five All restrooms are being redone will have all new restrooms.
July 13 Great park for kids by Armyengr
park review stars; one to five Camped here 5-9 July 2011, 4 adults, 2 children. This is a great place for kids--shallow sandy beach, playground and bike paths. However, I like a bit of privacy when camping and all the sites here are right on top of each other,you are always 20 ft. or so from your neighbors with little to separate you-very crowded. Washrooms are pretty decent for a state park.
