I love this place, it's been a couple years since my last visit and a lot had changed. But I did notice the trails seem poorly marked. I took the 1.1 mile hike and ended up going around in circles and made the loop twice as the trail markers were not clear. Also as I was exiting the gait would not take my money so the gait would not go up. There was a call button for service and they did put the gait up. It is a take in take out park. Nice picnics area. A bird watch area inside the building, you can rent canoes. It is a nice place to spend an afternoon with family, friends or just go by your self and enjoy the nature around you.

I highly suggest making the trip to this beautiful reserve. It's now me and my fiance's go to date night. The canoe/ kayak rentals are cheap and the lake is beautiful. The trails are very well maintained and the visitor center is full of cool facts and animals for the kiddos! Don't forget your sunscreen and bug spray!

Beautiful! The walk around the lake took about 1.5 at a leisurely stroll. We saw a beaver....go figure 😉 the "smell" garden was my favorite.....go see this, kid friendly, $8. Nice and shady for a hot day!

We love this nature center. Miles of trails, great children center. All the festivals are exciting and inexpensive. Whether it is for a couple hours by yourself, or for a child's birthday party, it always a wonderful place to get closer to nature.

Been visiting this lake for most of my life now. Clean, crisp trails and plenty of wildlife to see. It also has one of the most hassle free boat rentals for kayaks, canoes. Perfect way to spend a sunny day.
