Lake Crabtree Park

What it is: Lake Crabtree County Park is a 215-acre park adjacent to a 520-acre lake. The park offers plenty of areas for fishing, boating, hiking, picnics and biking.

What we like: There are so many fun outdoor activities to do at this lake. There are great hiking trails such as the 6 mile Lake trail and a nature trail. Parts of the Lake trail are paved and excellent for biking with toddlers or young kids. This trail also is very scenic and runs right along the lake. Parts of the Lake trail also runs through the woods and are shaded for hot summer days.

There are two playgrounds, a toddler playground and a children's playground. Both playgrounds are fairly shaded and have nice playground equipment. The children's playground is located right next to a beach volleyball area. When the volleyball area is not being occupied, it's great for digging and playing with sand toys.

Starting in mid April you can rent sailboats, rowboats, canoes and kayaks. You can rent the rowboats and canoes for only $5 and they can fit 4 to 5 people. I'm not sure how an active 2 year old boy would do in a canoe but I plan to try it soon. I'll post again after I do.

They also have great picnic shelters you can rent at affordable prices ($60-$80) for parties or any special occasion.
