We were here on a cloudy day which was unfortunate. If you get luck with a bright, sunny day, the lake will be beautiful for photo shootings. A must place to visit for those who enjoy nature and scenery in a peaceful environment.

A stunning lake, with lots of activities. Rent a canoe and go to beaches where you cannot come with a car. Lots of peace and quiet.
