  • Great little lake many trails but could use a little grooming Try the trail near the Nescopeck creek  more »
  • Best relaxing little lake. Many great fall pics. Quiet and peaceful. Go there several times a year. Recommend.  more »
  • It's a very beautiful, relaxing place to go and walk or go fishing. Come at least once, you won't be disappointed.
  • Great place to go and find some pristine woods to explore all by yourself. Bonus if you get to see a bear. Had a mother and two Cubs cross the trail about 50 yards in front of me.
