Adam and Kaleb started our visit off right with their help and friendliness. The lake is beautiful and we enjoyed exploring its fingers then turning off the engine and enjoying the peaceful surrounds.

We rented a houseboat for a long weekend for 6 adults and 3 kids. The lake was beautiful. The fishing was good. Exploring the shoreline was great.

Rented a canoe at the marina. Very nice staff and also the lady at the visitor center was most helpful. Also walked the trail along the lake. Great hike but not for someone really out of shape. Worth the visit

This place is lovely. Lake is great and great hike. If it is hot, you need to take plenty of water. We visited in March, so it was very comfortable. Hike is not always smooth.

I visited the place after so many excellent reviews. But disappointed. We don't do fishing or boating, so we had nothing to do there. No seating area from where you can seat and enjoy the view. No picnic tables. Even the way to the beach...More

This is such a beautiful place to spend time enjoying anytime of the year. The beaches are filled w beautiful stones to bring home for a great keepsake. Can't wait to go back.

Pontoon boats can be rented at the marina starting at 8 am in the morning. The pontoon boat will easily hold your entire group including pets.
