The Lake Shore Trail that surrounds Shawnee is a 3.5 mile flowing trail. It’s incredibly picturesque and makes the perfect trail for biking, hiking or just a romantic walk around the lake!!!

I used to come to this lake as a kid and go swimming. We would picnic and fish. Great to come back many years later and see its still a great lake and really nice clean well maintained park.

They have a trail that goes around the lake. We usually ride our bicycles. Pretty scenery. Fishing. Swimming in the summer months. Campground too. Not too crowded.

We went there during the fall, swimming was closed, but you could still go to the beach. Very pretty to just grab a cup of coffee and hang out.
