  • We took our granddaughters up there for an outing. When we got there, there was only one other car there. It was a beautiful setting and lake with a full path to get around and enjoy the view.  more »
  • We walked around the beautiful lake & it’s so peaceful! Lots of photo opportunities here! Our teens actually loved it! It’s an easy walk around. Lots of people fishing from the docks.  more »
