    Nice shaded spots to get in the water. A clean park. It's nice to be able to take a walk around the lake and enjoy the scenery.

    Wow. A must stop. We were traveling thru from Vermont to Boston and stopped at this Park for lunch and where very happy we did. Very close to the exit and great facilities. We were able to eat lunch right by the water and enjoy the beautiful view. I recommend this Park.

    Gorgeous lake view. Easy dirt parking lot. Entrance fee. Not too crowded. Picnic tables, playground, bathrooms and changing rooms. Carry in/carry out all food and trash. Beach is narrow and is shady until afternoon when sun hits from the left. Water is wonderful and great for swimming but bring water shoes... bottom is rocky and mucky.
