Has a nice playground, warm water beach, and great camp spots. This is a really nice park. I loved my time there. We had a large camp spot.

Great place for family day. We were there just for the beach, not for the hiking. Kids loved this place. Water was warm, but beach a little bit rocky. We spent there all day and were very happy. My advice is: go there after 1pm, I think it's most comfortable time for this place.

Nestled in the woods behind the beach are many picnic benches and small covered areas. Across highway 106 there is a two mile loop trail that goes through... More

This is a LARGE park with nice hiking trails, but beware of bears. There is a 2.5 mile hiking trail through some pretty interesting forest with gigantic trees and lots of wonderful plants. This was originally built by the CCC and they were in the process of doing some restoration work while we were there. The beach is pebbly and... More

Nice rock beach. Gets a little crowded, but fun time with the wife and kids. Has nice covered pavillions. Just make sure to watch for the eagles.
