  • We were there for a very quick stop to eat our lunch. But found the lake area to be clean and beautiful. Marina, campgrounds, swimming area, several picnic shelters as well as various tables spread around the walking trail. And a pleasant surprise to find the mountain homepage there in the grounds. I'll be back for a longer stay and bring my grandchildren.
