Picnic & swimming
- Went there with a group on Aug 28...the grounds are great for a day out. However the bathrooms were spotless at 8:30, but by 10am they were a disgusting mess that just got worse. If a Parkway reststop can be kept clean all day, so can 4 bathrooms.
Half the adjacent beach area was closed but had 2 lifeguards in one chair...maybe one could have moved 75 feet and sat by himself and avoinded terrible overcrouding? Beaches were also closed for 45 min 3 times so both life guards could take their break together instead of staggering them.
As a park the people that were there that day made a mess, there was no Ranger control and do not listen to instructions. One person was told not to fish 5 times over the loud speaker, but just kept walking back and fishing and there were no rangers in sight all day.
This facility is to be closed M-F Aug 29- Sept 3 and then open for the final Holiday weekend. I think new management is warranted, as this is a beautiful area.
I would love to come back, but not on the weekend.
