We did not walk around the lake, though there was a path available. Picnic areas with tables and a gazebo. We drove up by the gazebo and took photos of the interesting rock formations. We were lucky since there were no day fees on Wednesday.

Located immediately off the main drag, accessible to the retired residents and their RC sailboats- the only watercraft witnessed, although there is a launch. The water level was critically low, which I think contributed to the swarms of buzzing insects along the trail that we tried. Red-winged blackbirds remind you that this area should have more water and more trees available as habitat- just not on our visit.

Lovely views of the Granite dells. Worth the short drive out to see the lake and rocks. Hiking trails go around the lake.

Nice views and the rocky path is well marked. Almost no one was there. A boat launch is available. It looks ideal for canoeing or kayaking. The lake is stocked with rainbow trout. One could spend a few hours or most of a day here.

Very close to downtown Prescott. Huge boulders surround this lake. Some of the area is easy to climb on rocks. Very unique lake because of the formations.
