The lake is beautiful and ideal for pictures! We also had a picnic near by! I want to return during summer, the lake is has many activities to offer. We were surprised by the number of kite-surfers at the lake.

Maps get you going in the general direction but signage is poor or non-existent and few people around to help with directions as they don't even know road numbers. The dam was impressive and we enjoyed the drive, otherewise.
