  • We visited here in March 2020 so out of peak times but it still felt remarkably less touristy than some of the other lakes nearby. Highly recommend if you want to be off the grid without the hustle...  more »
  • We absolutely loved our visit here. We were able to drive around the lake, quite close to the water’s edge. The views as you approach and as you drive around the lake are stunning.  more »
