Collins Creek Cascade
Hiking Trails & Scenic Walking Areas
Perfect family hike or nature walk on this trail! It’s close to nearby parking, a playground is nearby, and water is crossable by foot or by bridge. Downhill from this is a small trout hatchery with rainbow trout. Small waterfalls can be found and very cold water perfect for summer days. Disc golf is nearby for more family fun. Dog friendly but some sections can be a little steep.
Soft sand by the lakeside
Picnic tables, clean water and lots of space. Great place to swim and watch the sunset. Great place to bring a boat out and spend some time out on the water. Volleyball sand pit and safe swimming for children. Also where you can find The World Championship Cardboard Boat Races! Please be aware cooking is not allowed on the beach and parking fills up fast so get there early!
Ruland Junction Toy Train Museum
8AM-4PM (Closed on Sunday’s & Monday’s, holidays may affect hours)
Wheelchair accessible entrance, this cute toy train museum is fun for kids and adults alike. Staff are very knowledgeable and collectors themselves so ask them anything. The majority of trains are handmade and charming.
