Clear water, greater swimming, boating, kayaking, canoeing and of course fishing. Many large and small mouth bass, rainbow and brown trout, and salmon if you like trolling deep.

The views are amazing, trails for hiking, boating on the lake was calm with lots of coves to explore, and an area to swim with a dock to swim out to from the beach.

We simply enjoy a nice leisurely drive around the lake. Pretty lake views, very relaxing. Photographic pull-offs along the way, for those wanting to take pix.
