It was a nice beach not too crowded for a hot Saturday here in Nashville. Selection of beach I was on was a little rocky when first going into the water but it wasn't too bad.

Close enough for a day trip, it's a pretty great spot to get away from the bustle of the city. Waterskiing was a blast. I forget how much I love fresh-water lakes.

Was a great bit of fun. Torches and skeletons lining walk way. All kinds of scary features. Great for kids and teens

My husband and I ran the greenway marathon which started near the dam. We had a great time. The greenway near the dam has beautiful views. Huge dog park at base of the dam.
