The walk in tent sites near one of the marinas resemble a small empty lot, rutted and muddy, where some picnic tables, fire rings and brush are tossed around. The lake was pretty and the lake side hiking trail I tried was pleasant though muddy,...More

The lodge is situated by the lake...it has beautiful views and a nice restaurant. There is also a boat rental nearby so you can cruise around the lake for an hour or two, and there are numerous hiking trails all well marked.

I didn't actually spend time doing any activities but looked like good hiking, fishing and relaxing things to do. I saw a mini golf course and disc golfing areas as well. Plenty of cabins to rent. I will be back to explore more.

The place is really in the middle of nowhere but the views, trails and of course the lake are worth it to get there. The dinning room and the lobby has great views of the water. Some of the rooms do some don't. Ours had...More
