It is a short walk from the sign, along an unimproved trail. (the trail has had some additional improvements since the cache was first hidden)
Parking for personal vehicles is again free for 2011. Boat dock is also free. The shortest route from the dock is the footpath and not the blacktop road.
There is a great playground for the kids. A unique man-made swimmin' hole and beach is available (for an activity fee). There is a dog exercise area. Park hours are 6 AM til sunset. Obey all posted rules.
