The18-hole golf course at this park is very popular. In a mountain setting above a small reservoir, the park is very scenic. Campsites and picnic areas extend along the reservoir shoreline. Gas powered boats are not allowed on the reservoir. Canoes and paddle boats are popular and can be rented. The reservoir is heavily stocked for family fishing. Nearby, Six-Mile Canyon provides access to a large network of ATV and snowmobile trails along Skyline Drive.
