Great walk along the stony lakefront but very difficult to get to. Go to the end of the Army road and you end up turning into what looks like someones backyard to park your car.

We found this place by following other cars and it is somewhat hidden as you need to walk through a grassy path to get to the water. It is not packed as a result and the swimming there was great!

A great place to bring a picnic . And stretch out on the rocks . If you get there early in the am , walk across the road to see the bird banding ( in season ) sept , crystal clear water to swim . Dog friendly .

Beautiful water and teenagers had fun on the rocky shore. We especially loved the sunset! A real gem! Not a place to put down towels but a chair and some quiet relaxing time listening to the waves on the shore with not a lot of people around was really peaceful.

Too far from the regular attraction points - not much to see unless you are interested in solidarity.
