The beach area was weed free and quiet and there was also a park and a dock and a separate fishing dock. There is adequate parking near the beach or even at the nearby boat launch. I enjoyed the path through the woods for a small hike.

This lake is 21 miles long with enough coves and bays it makes you feel like you are the only one on the lake!

Take the boat out late at night and check out the zillion stars! Fishing was almost none existent and the only 4 Northern we caught in 7 days were all... More
