We passed this lake several times during our stay and we all commented on it and how nasty it was with an over abundance of ducks and trash. It would have been great to explore it if it had been cleaned up.

Peaceful and fun to watch the ducks and geese but trash in water. If someone cleaned out the lake it would be a perfect spot for small fishing and duck/geese watching
