EVENT FAQ:

  • Bring your camp chairs or picnic blankets & gear.  There are picnic tables (albeit very hard) under the pavilion.
  • Yes, there are restrooms on site at the pavilion.
  • There is a swim area (with no lifeguard - so swim at your own risk) as well as a kid's playground.
  • There is a self-serve kayak / paddle board rental stand, if you desire.  See Gnarly Marsh
  • You may bring your own kayaks or paddle board, as there is an easy place to beach-launch from, just next to the boat dock.  
  • NO motor boat launch ramp at this location.  If you are going to bring your own motor boat for the day, please contact Becky Burns at the email address above.  You will not be allowed to tie up at the dock located at the park so bring your own anchors.  And for those who may need it, there is a boat ramp close by Holly Park
