Such a peaceful place. We canoe and fish here often. We always catch plenty of sunfish and I always enjoy seeing the herons. There's also a bicycle path for a walk or ride.

Enjoy taking the kayaks out early morning or sunset. The wildlife and peacefulness of the lake are relaxing. The perfect way to de-stress from a long week

We were on a family camping vacation and my husband and brother in law rented a boat and fished o the lake. Everyone was very nice in the area and it was very affordable to rent a fishing boat! The kids rode their bikes like crazy and the dog ran all day! It was very relaxing!

Great bike trail, not too long, does a loop around lake with fun gentle rises and dips and curves. One section requires sharing a back road. Good restrooms, parking, picnic areas, fishing spots. Can't speak to beach area or boats rentals but know they have them. Nice winery nearby.

Can't wait to come back when everything is in bloom because it is a very beautiful lake and surrounding woods. Friends have a boat and have offered to take us out on it this summer. Looking forward to... More

We had a pontoon and love spending Sundays there. It was a very nice time out. The place was clean and people wear nice. We spent my first Mothers day there.
