Don't have a fishing pole? No problem! Ask at the park about their fishing loaner program where you can check out FREE equipment.

Hiking

Mountain laurel, holly, dogwood, and wildflowers provide a rich tapestry of native flora.

Swimming
Need to cool off on a hot summer day? Enjoy swimming and playing on the sand beach for endless hours of fun. For your convenience, a bathhouse with showers, rest rooms, and a vending area is available. Open Memorial Day-Labor Day.
