  • This is a great lake to kayak but unfortunately there was a forest fire nearby so we didn't get to see very far into the distance... but what we could see was just wonderful. The launch area was very nice, clean and easy to get in and out.
  • This is one of my most favorite spots to visit. Whether you are there in the summer time to enjoy horseback riding, canoeing, walking around the river, swimming in the river or camping or there in the Winter time using the snow trails and visiting the beautiful forest this is the most serene place on the planet.
