There are also 200 covered slips available for boats, including rental houseboats, jet skis and pontoon boats!
If that's not enough, there is an 18-hole mini golf course that you and the family can challenge each other over, as well as a fun playground where kids can get out all of that energy we know they have stored up!
Spend the day enjoying a lovely picnic, and there's the marina with a restaurant, with all the boat facilities. A beach in a State Park? There is here! Bask on the sand as a break from all that hiking!

If you fancy some ports, there are basketball and volleyball courts in the park too! Of course there are!
There are picnic areas so make sure you pack a lunch and really make a day of it!
Healthy Eating It's always a great idea when hiking to take water and healthy snacks to keep that energy up!
