    Wonderful spot for a lab

    We take our yellow lab there about once a week from October 15th to April 15th. We throw his toy (a small boat fender) either in one of the coves or off the end of one of the docks. You have to consider walking through the snow to get from the paths to the shoreline. Be prepared.

    Can’t give a full rating

    we came by the day after they closed for dogs for the season. the restaurant was also closed for the season and it would take a month to get a refund for the $15 parking.

    most expensive rest area I’ve ever been to.

    Amazing Trail, Incredible Views, Watch Out For Pet Paws On The Pavement!

    Words cannot express the beautiful scenery and views from this new multi use trail. The trail can be tough on sensitive pet paws, so take care to protect them!
