The drive to the lake was not worth the time. The lake was extremely dirty and the swimming portion was covered in moss and disgusting.

Pretty good if you want to go hiking. You definitely don't want to take a dip in this lake. Kings river is much better suited for that. So much moss and algae hanging around. Overall, it's worth a visit!

Many trails. Somewhat rough terrain so not very conducive for the elderly. Be sure to visit the dam after a big rain

I agree with the other answer too. The lake is really beautiful but no shore line for much of anything. Not the right place to have a wedding at
