It is very popular in weekends. If you would like go prefer week days. It has lots of clean and wide green areas for picnic. You can park your car side of the road. There are lots of good and nice hotels for accommodation.

One day trip to the lake. Weather was not perfect but we enjoyed the trip. Lake is beautiful and has several BB areas and facilities. During the summer time the color of the water is much better and there are water lilies

Hello, as far as I know there are tours to Abant from Istanbul. You can also go to Bolu by bus and take another bus from Bolu to Abant. Be careful about heavy snow in December
