It has many positive attributes, but the one I like most is the Tom Jackson designed 18 hole golf course. So our first stop at the park was the Pro Shop where we picked up score cards and got pricing info for future play. WOW--I can play a championship course for, at most, $35 even on the weekend with a cart!!

Our next stop was at the Park Office where we inquired about the campsites and kayak rentals.
Kayak and Canoe Rentals
We have our Sea Eagle Kayak, but our good friends -- Bill and Chris, may go with us and they would need to rent a kayak or a canoe. If you look at the map, you will see that the lake is in the middle of the park. The golf course, cabins and park office are on one side and the campground and boat launch are on the other. At the far south end of Lake Juniper, near Turkey Oak Trail, are the Cypress Groves which we would love to kayak through. Here is a picture from the Web Site of the groves. Hope we can get our own picture when we stay here.
We decided to walk the boardwalk around the northern end of the lake over to the campground. It is about 3/4 of mile. Before we did that, we did a little tailgating.
