This weekend we went to Bear Creek Lake Park in Lakewood- it is a park that does not honor the State Parks Pass but it is a cool park with a lake and a swim beach. You can also rent kayaks and non-motorized boats to take around the lake. The beach is nice but rocky and the rest of the park boasts hiking trails, horse stables (including pony rides for kids), an archery range, and a marina. I really thought it was a nice park with a lot of amenities and the beach area was a lot of fun for kids and adults alike.
I definitely recommend a trip out to Bear Creek Lake Park’s Soda Lake and Beach area. What summer is complete without a trip to the beach?
