Boasting 585 feet of sand and gravel lakeshore, this park provides excellent swimming opportunities, for both humans and your four-legged friend.

You’ll enjoy cool, clear waters along a smooth cobble beach on Whitefish Lake with shaded picnic tables, great swimming, and a spot to launch your canoe or kayak.
