Miles of wooded shoreline are ideal for camping, hiking & other recreation.

Scenic picnic areas provide tables & grills. Picnic shelters are first-come first-served. Programs provide summer entertainment.
2,650-acre Michael J. Kirwan Lake offers a sand swimming beach. From sailing to power boats, all boating is permitted w/no horsepower limit.
