Things to Do

We have a little something for everyone here at Lake Park Campground and Cottages!

  • Feel like a bike ride or a hike? A paved bike path goes around the lake and along Rapid Creek for about 8 miles. Bike rentals are right here at Lake Park you can pick yours up and start making tracts as soon as you arrive. 
  • For the fisherman, Rapid Creek and Canyon Lake offer excellent trout fishing. This may be the time to try your hand at fly fishing.
  • Have kids? If the kids don't have the patience for fishing, they can wade in the creek or rent a paddle boat for a little boating fun…don't worry, motorized boats are not allowed on Canyon Lake. Plenty of room to fly a kite or play some good old lawn games.
  • If a little more formal swimming is your desire, the Jimmy Hilton Municipal Pool is just a couple miles down the bike path. You’ll also find tennis and racquetball courts.
  • For the golfer, Meadowbrook Golf Course is less than a mile away and offers 18 holes of play, a pro shop and dining. (One of our favorites for breakfast)
  • When evening rolls around and you don't feel up to cooking for the gang, our staff will give you their favorite recommendations for unique dining experiences.

Give yourself a pat on the back for a great vacation pick !!!
