Local Lakes - Swimming, Kayaking, Fishing
Echo Lake State Park
Echo Lake State Park - If you're looking to go for a swim, cool off by the lake, take a hike, have a picnic, or just kick back and read a book, this is the place to do it. Rent a canoe, kayak, or paddle boat, it's a great place for kids on the beach, swings, and play structures. Grassy expanses of lawn for frisbee, boat rentals, grills, and restrooms.
There is a fee to enter the grounds and it's worth it.
Woodward Reservoir - A jewel to both look at, listen to, swim and kayak, and canoe in. Surrounded by verdant woods and mountain peaks, they both are home to numerous waterfowl, especially loons.
