Comment: This is a nice little stroll through the pines and along the shore. I had difficulties using the gps coordinates provided. The easiest way to get there is to turn off Hwy 7 onto Edgewood Dr. Follow the signs to the golf course. Once you get there, you'll turn left and go down into the "courts/laundry" area.

To ensure you enjoy your state park experience, be aware of the natural world. There are some areas which are potentially hazardous to all visitors. Since it is impractical to post signs at all danger points, use caution when approaching such areas as cliffs, caves, heavily wooded areas, swamps, streams, and lakes. Adults are responsible for children in their care. If unsure about possible hazards, check at the visitor center.
