The park setting is beautiful. It has everything, Resort, cabins, camping, picnic area, trails, lake for fishing and boating, plus a swimming pool. We were only interested in the view and just drove through the park. It was a very nice drive.

We loved the drive and the inexpensive canoe rental. Parking at the marina was horrible, but we know that for next time. Hope to return again soon and rent a pontoon for a day ($85 not bad!)

The pool is not longer in use . That said the city had taken over the pool and are renovating it we will have to wait and see . I imagine it will cost a fee though .
