Not big considering that the rain water must be abundant, but is calm and quite. Surrounded by trees, the reflections in water give some good snaps.

Charlotte lake is average - its a dam from where they get their water. Their is a path to the right when approaching the charlotte lake and that has great depth views to the valley, so if you are visiting charlotte lake then don't miss the view adjacent to it ( where the horses stop ).

Visit the lake early morning to avoid the noisy, shutter-bug crowd. There's a panoramic view of the hills from one point and just squatting there and gazing into the distance can be very fulfilling.

Lake is very very beautiful. There is long bridge which is over the lake where people cant sit. Cold breeze keeps cmg towards you. Felt great and it was worth going to lake.
