Fun watching the people jump off of the rocks and ledges. It is well kept and lots of shade. The beach was clean and all of the surrounding areas were clean.

Not far out of Fergus. Has a great little beach and a ton of walking trails. Good boat launch facilities. Great way to spend a summer day or fall hiking to see the colors. Then venture into Fergus its a quaint little town to explore.
