Awesome lake for kayaking! Easy access from many launches around lake, nice clean restrooms. Parking easy, no charge. Clean water, warm. Awesome area to pull off on land for lunch, picnic tables also available. No large boats, mostly pontoons and sailboats. Love it here!

As beautiful as any lake we visited in Europe! We rented a pontoon boat for the day and had a wonderful, relaxing day. The entire staff at the lake was top notch-super friendly and helpful.

We rented a pontoon boat from the marina and they were very helpful in showing me how to use it. The lake itself is large and very scenic.
