With miles of trails for hiking and biking you don’t need a boat to enjoy this outdoor experience. But if you do have a boat you’re in luck because there are two marinas, 60 miles of shoreline, scores of hidden coves, and plenty of wide open water to go get wet in. There are rentals available for everything from jet skis to stand up paddle boards to pontoon boats. Overnight camping is also available. A parks pass is required.
