This is a nice, quiet little lake. The facilities for picnics and restroom area are very nice and clean. Nice swimming area. The trails are nice but not marked well.

Very clean, its extremely quiet. Took the dog, but he couldn't swim. $3 entry fee and up. There are lots of picnic tables, lots of trees so you're semi secluded

The lake is small but nice. Great for kayaking, SUP, swimming. Although you cannot access the lake from most campsites (there is a beach).
