It is unlikely that one will stumble onto this place accidentally- as it is literally in the middle of nowhere. There are signs pointing to Gullfiskvatnet - Gold Fish Lake - but even when we got there we had a hard time locating where you actually access the lake - it was completely abandoned.
We did finally find it. It has a small wood shed with 2 picnic tables and access to the lake. There were a few ducks and a bunch of large gold fish (not the small ones used in home aquariums). Both ducks and fish must be overfed - they showed limited interest in breadcrumbs thrown their way.
Pleasant place for a picnic if you are close by - wouldn't bother otherwise.

The fish are there to see close up as well as the place being a nice spot to stop and have a lumch and a strill. Even got a perfectly respectable loo.

This lake is beautiful and very quiet. Nice place to stay for a break.
You can see lots of gold fish there.
