  • Long wait, but well worth it. Clear beautiful water defiantly like heavens mirror. The kids liked the big fish too.  more »

  • This was a place i had only been too once many, many years ago. Had wanted to get back to show my two daughters. They both enjoyed it very much. They loved how crystal clear the water is and they found a spot where they could touch it and feel how cold it was. In all it was a nice little journey.
  • Amazing place to see. The water is so clear, spring fed ice cold water with a temp of 45 degrees it amazing it never freezes. A hidden hem in the U.P.
