This is a beautiful park with several shelters that can be rented. We had a family gathering here and couldn't have been happier. Kids will love feeding the fish and if you're looking for a place for family photos it's great for that too.

Here you can walk around the beautiful state park, feed fish, they have BBQ pits, pavillions, playgrounds for the kids and ball courts. Wonderful place to spend the day or even for a lunch time picnic.
