We took our extended family to hike around the lake and the children, ages 4-9 had the best time! The children loved seeing the trail markers and the waterfall, as well as climbing the rocks! Great for an adventure!

That's a good question. Table Rock has a welcome center with an outstanding view. I would choose TR.
