From inside park (admission fee)
Drive though the East Gate and stop at Overlook (the dam for the lake), park and walk around the right side of the trail next to the water. Good photo opportunities.
Continuing driving on the road, until you come to a pull off (second overlook) and photograph Table Rock, up close and personal
Continue to the swimming area parking lot, park and walk across the road  and follow a short paved trail and photograph small waterfalls along the way.
Once you come to a metal bridge, you can take the Carrick Nature Trail. (Note: going to the left is more photographic)
If you take the Table Rock Trail and follow it all the way to the end, you will have a spectacular view of Table Rock Reservoir
  - It is a tough hike to the top
  - Consider limiting the amount of equipment you carry
Bathroom facilities are available
