She responds to pretty much every dog in sight. Its almost impossible to walk by a dog on the street without her barking and lunging at the dog. I can push her back into a sit, but her attention is still on the other dog. If I have to pass a dog I just have to hold onto her really tight. She has never bit a dog and the moment the leash comes off she is great with other dogs. She has regular play dates with 1-3 other dogs with no issues and we go to a large forest preserve dog park and she has no issues...

Also I am aware that the e-collar can amp up situations for her and its only used in low stress situation for her right now. She responds great to it and always wants to put it on. Just hold it out and she runs up and puts her head on it.

I *personally* would not use one in this circumstance - I would get a good trainer in to evaluate the dog and assess the behavior. There is certainly a chance of making the OP's problem worse, rather than better. Just my opinion, that's all.
I have to agree with this. I use the e collar when we walk off leash and my 10 months old runs out of sight. I now use it on vibrate. In fact he respind more on vibrate than pulse. He had a couple of encounters at the off leash park were we walk and I did not use the collar because of the proximity of the other dog. My thought was precisely what you stated.

I love our 35 acres park but rally dislike all the untrained dog owners that we meet there. Any suggestions on how to handle those humans.

You could try fitting them with an e-collar...
