  • SUCH A BEAUTIFUL PLACE !! It is one of the nicest get away spots I've seen in a long time. It is large enough to have your own area for 500+ yards if camping. It is easy enough to get down to the water & swim. There are restrooms located in different spots around (port-a-john style). It is simply breath-taking.
  • Water was great temp but lake was way too crowded.
