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.

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 .
