We really enjoyed the scenic tour we took to look at the fall leaves! Captain Steve was super nice and informative and I was even able to bring my therapy dog. Reasonably priced too! Thank you!

We spent the afternoon with Captain Steve enjoying the fall foliage. The views were amazing and captain Steve was excellent. He shared so much information with us about the lake and the damn. I highly recommend him. Beautiful day!

$15 for adults for a the 2:00 pm tour which lasted about 1 hour and 40 minutes. A good value in my opinion.

I honestly have no idea, we went as a group so I didn't pay. The best time for us was around 7 o'clock in the morning! There was so much wildlife at that point. Hope I was able to help at least a little bit. Enjoy.
