Would recommend for 1day visit, not more than that , nothing much to see. Place is not so clean, lake is the only attraction and not so good that you need to travel to see this.

The lake is very clean and not much crowded. it was easy to get a boat on a weekend and the staff was really helpful. The prices are very reasonable and i believe maintained by the government. It's a very nice experience so go for it.

We went with the Row boat which is not self driven. So we sat and enjoyed taking photos, we were so lucky to have a excellent photographer boat skipper. He was so interested in taking our photographs and they were amazing. Nice and peaceful boat ride.

Have seen much better lakes, but considering it being the only lake here, is decently maintained and can be visited if on the way of one's drive.

Take a walk around it and that's all I did. The boating was too crowded. There is a nice park adjoining this lake. Good time for kids to spend time there.
