Beautiful beaches, very peaceful, the water look very clean and clear, the forest is wonderful. Bring a bathing suit, and towel, a great area for picnic.

We were here on a hot afternoon, and were impressed with how well kept it was. Bathrooms were immaculate for a park! It was a very nice afternoon here.

We were hoping to find a hiking trail around the lake but only found a short one, other than that it was a beautiful lake and picnic area, and the water was warm and not too many people either.

Very quiet and lovely, with well-kept trails. The lake was very quiet when we were there, and I had opportunity for some great reflection shots with my new camera ! Nice picnic tables close to the water.

We dropped in on a sunny and frosty fall day. The main gate is locked in winter but you can walk in (400 m) and cruise along the shoreline. So quiet and peaceful. Excellent picnic spot any time of the year. The road is paved...More

There is not much here but some picnic tables and outhouses but the beach area is fantastic. It's never packed with people and there is a boat launch there for kayaks and paddle boards (no motors allowed) and canoes. If you enjoy the peace and...More

I'm not sure. It's pretty rugged and the paths that are there are all dirt. When were you thinking of going?? I might be able to get up there and check before you go all the way out there??
