Huge park with multiple hiking/mountain biking paths. A lot of places to camp, numerous lakes and lots of pine forest. There is a small town at the end of the road that goes down the middle of the peninsula.

Wonderful park for a bike ride or hike. Do take refreshments for a picnic or snack though as the hike is huge and nothing available in the park. Some great vistas!
