Take time to enjoy the Gate To the Mountains Boat Tour. Beautiful scenery, lots of information about area geology, history (Lewis and Clark Expedition route) of the area. Eagles and other wild life can be seen. It was interesting, relaxing and fun entertainment.

We enjoyed Hauser Lake so much that we went back the second night. The water is crystal clear and gorgeous. It's the perfect spot to relax, fish, swim, boat, jog or hike - all within the city limits!

This place has many well kept up camp sites available. The serenity of the lake is wonderful and not usually over crowded. I here fishing is quite good there. Enjoy!
