Nothing much to see. Told this was a good rock collecting site, however there was no place to pull off the highway to get a look at the shore.

Had a nice hike around the lake. There was a big mountain bike race going on that weekend, so restricted to the one trail, but it was the one we wanted anyway. Moderately level hike, though the surrounding trails can get as steep as you'd...More

We spent a couple of hours at the lake. The day was relatively cold, but we took a four mile hike around the lake. The trails were well marked and easy to hike. Stop by the office at the marina to get a trail map....More

There are so many different trails to hike around the lake. Great for a quick stop or to spend more time at. You can rent paddle boats and other things to use on the lake. Worth the trip, not far from town.

We enjoyed the walking paths near the lake. It was very pretty and everything was very well kept. Very few people there on the day we visited. This may be a hidden treasure.

The drive to the lake was not worth the time. The lake was extremely dirty and the swimming portion was covered in moss and disgusting.

I agree with the other answer too. The lake is really beautiful but no shore line for much of anything. Not the right place to have a wedding at
