The entrance in front of the Walmart Plaza is the one I saw open. The people in the area seem friendly and there is plenty of parking. Good thing is there is plenty of eatery in the area.

Beautiful lake. Right now the northeast has been sufering from a drought and the lake has been a little affected. But it still good place to relax. People are nice and the place is very clean.
