Very enjoyable. You can fish, swim, paddle board, kayak. Lots of lake access to fish. Great view of Mt. Shasta. Great family picnic/gathering place.

We enjoyed just sitting watching the peacefulness of the water and the view of the pines across the lake. Also taking a walk along the pathways around the lake was pleasant too.
