Had a local person take me for a motorcycle ride up and around the reservoir and it was in the late evening and it was really nice and very picturesque. Well worth the short ride up and around.

Jamestown has a true hidden treasure at the Reservoir! We explored the beaches, the water and the Island. Enjoyed sundown at the Island - what a great view!

Spent some time touring here while in Jamestown and found it to be pretty and with multiple scenic views from roads around it. Did not fish it but locals seem to like fishing here.

I live about 15 minutes walk from here and if in Jamestown it makes a lovely afternoon with lots of watersports, fishing and green space for picnics.

Really a beautiful location, love the island for a picnic or frisbee golfing. The beach is nice, but the water is kind of dirty--a shower is sort of needed after swimming.
