The lake was beautiful but it was too chilly to do any activities on the lake although if it had been warmer, we would have taken the boat duck tour.

Stopped many a time to take photos. Not over crowded nice to have some peace and silence. Highly recommended to some camper friends of mine as the view to wake up to is phanolapal.

Pretty nice clear water lake with lots of islands and quartz crystals everywhere. It was kind of busy when we were there but you can find a few nice semi primitive camping spots. Much better than the super touristy Beavers Bend state park.

Yes there is tent camping at all of the camp areas and all are pretty nice. Some are close to the water. Try Carson creek south. Nice restroom and shower nearby. Not sure of cost but guessing around $10 a night.
