Town life is around this lake. You get park, boating, market and food option on this area. Boating is must and on the way one can take enjoy good walk around the lake.

Clean lake and was good for boating. Staff are extremely friendly and well-mannered. Weather was not too hot, so boating was enjoyable.

Lake is pretty small.. Not as the name suggest - big lake. You can prioritize to do boating after completing all.

The lake is quite big in size and it doesn't stink :) .The main attraction is its boating facility.One can have a pedal boat or one can simply sit in boat and enjoy the lake.

Good experience - Although it was only 15-20 Minutes - but the ride was good considering the lake size and enviourment around it

Big lake is worth a try for the boating around the calm and cool yercaud lake. Pleasant trip. Please do check the timings as they close early in the evening.

Speed boat ride was fun, though we had to wait for more than an hour as it was long weekend. The cool breez and the clean water made us feel good.

Lakes in the hill station will be always good and boating in that will be fine , went for the pedal boating , but there are no organised queue ... and overall management of the boating queue was poor, during crowded days prepare to wait for and hour before you go for boating
