We stopped here on a whim and was extremely surprised by just how beautiful it was. A walk round the lake reminded us of being in Canada, extremely peaceful and beautiful scenery. The kids play areas were great as well. Definitely worth a visit.

No, we never saw any boats and I would have thought that entering the water was forbidden, its not that type of lake .
