We rented a Canadian canoe on the lake. It was lovely out there. The kids, 6and3, really enjoyed it. We then played on the upper beach and took a walk along the dam. There were lots of other families enjoying the fine day there too, walking, paddling, fishing, bbqing, sailing. It's a pretty place. The beach not as clean as I'd like, and the same for the toilets attached to the boat rental.

Love it here! Take walks here a few times a week. Very quiet and beautiful. I've been kayaking here too. Nice places for picnics, naps, drawing, just peace in nature.

....on what you are looking for. The big draw here is the lake, which is small but nice. If you are looking for a park to get out on the lake (they have rentals in the Summer) then this is a nice spot. Otherwise, there's not much to it to attract a crowd.

We went to Boating in Boston at Hopkinton State Park on a beautiful Saturday in July. Boat rentals open at 10 am. We got there pretty early so it wasn't very crowded. We kayaked for an hour, then drove around to find a picnic location, of which there are many. We ended up eating right on the lake. The kayaking was wonderful. Although there were quite a few people there, it's a good sized lake with no motor crafts allowed. You can pull up on the shore in various places and swim/and or have a picnic if you bring supplies with you. There are also a few small islands you can stop at. There are plenty of kayaks, paddle boards, canoes and other boats to rent if that's what you're interested in. There is also a nice beach surrounded by a picnic area in the trees where there are charcoal grills. There is a second, smaller lake connected by a sluice that appears to be the result of runoff from the larger lake. It also has a beach and lots of picnic tables near by. The two are separated by a causeway that you can walk over. It's a nice place to spend a low key summer day or take a long walk with or without your dog. Admission is $5 and there are loads of parking areas spread around the park. It was just starting to get crowded when we left at 1 pm

Park has lots of parking...the season pass is a great deal at $35! Lots to do here...swimming, walking, fishing, hiking, kayaking. There are lots of people having picnics and BBQs at both areas of the park.
