  • I live right by the lake there’s a variety of activities. There’s hiking, mountain biking, boating, swimming, water sports, etc. On clear days you can see the outline of the mountains over the lake.

  • Speechless. Beautiful area to go hang out,swim, hike, and have a great BBQ day out with the family. Even some peace and alone time. Reasonable entrance price. And can even use boats and jet ski. I recommend it!
  • Beautiful camping site. I used to come here every summer when I was young with my family. Great memories
