Revitalizing Lake Cunningham

Completed improvements at Lake Cunningham include a six-mile concrete multipurpose trail that loops around the lake and crosses over two new pedestrian bridges. The new loop trail is a never-before experience that will attract both walkers and bikers, giving them the opportunity to enjoy nature and wildlife.

Lake Cunningham has 42 new campground stalls complete with water, power and sanitary at each pad as well as a new bathhouse facility. In addition, 41 upgraded camping stalls are in the existing campground with expected upgrades to the current bathhouse and advances to the electrical from 20 to 50 amplification. There are 17 tent camping spots. New grills and firepits will accompany all of the campground stalls.

Security cameras and lighting have been integrated at park entrances and parking lots to ensure the safety of visitors. Other entrance renovations include new gates, signage and newly paved parking lots. All shelter buildings around the park have been renovated, 1,100 new trees have been planted and old trees and overgrown areas have been removed. The marina docks have been restored with previous amenities for slip holders. The former trademark lighthouse has been reconditioned and stationed at the docks as the lake’s focal point. The marina also features a newly renovated bathroom facility.

In addition to the improvements stated above, the project includes expanded amenities that will activate Lake Cunningham and offer unforgettable nature experiences. These include an archery range, paddleboard and kayaking, an 18-hole disc golf course, and a future mountain bike trail.

Cunningham Culture

Lake Cunningham is responsive to the needs of its surroundings and aware of the desire to nourish the connectivity of nature by providing an unforgettable outdoor adventure at little to no cost. Our goal is to encourage a memorable and positive nature experience for those seeking discovery or relaxation in the outdoors as well as offer recreational services through Lake Cunningham’s modern facilities and amenities.

The park will be a safe place for individuals of all ages and backgrounds to gather and explore. The Coronavirus pandemic has highlighted the importance of communal programs within parks. Parks are one of the few remaining places where people can get out of their homes, be active and connect from a distance with their neighbors.

We invite you to come explore the newly redeveloped Lake Cunningham and all it has to offer.
