Fishing is good. Weekends have a lot of other activity on the lake. Better to fish early or late. Not crowded during the week. Winter ice fishing is good too

Lake is beautiful, but drowing out the sounds of the loons are kids screeming on resort beaches and boats pulling skiiers and tubers. Even night fishing was tough. Dark lake so ideally you would want to fish the day but boat pressure negatively affected the ability to do so. No luck on the musky with spinners or suckers.

Will most definitely be going back to do some boating. Loved the soft sandy beach and the fishing looked very busy.

Lots of little areas tucked away from the main lake. White-tailed deer, bald eagles, loons, mallards, and fishers are common sights in this area. If you're into wildlife, you won't be disappointed.

We love to rent a pontoon boat at Holiday Acres and visit the islands. Our dogs love it too!
