This county park is huge and has a lot of amenities including disc golf, group shelters, campgrounds, volleyball courts, and a dog off-leash area. It’s a great place to get a little exercise in as it is a little flat and shaded by the trees. There are a few loops that you can do but it takes around 30 minutes to walk the whole perimeter.
Token Creek is a narrow creek that winds its way through woods and the Cherokee Marsh before it joins the Yahara River. It’s a fun creek to paddle if you have the time and energy. During the winter, the water level is usually high enough to paddle. Unlike other lakes in the area, the creek is not too shallow or slow. Putting in is a bit tricky as there is a rock ledge that you have to portage over (unless you’re crazy and want some scratches on your boat). There are also two long bridge tunnels that you’ll have to paddle through. Find out more!
