Its a nice place for boating. A bit crowded but enjoyable. You can find many places for eating around Venna lake. Rate for boating and other activities are fixed by Maharashtra Tourist Department.

The lake is a great place if you just like to sit and enjoy the sunset. But the boating activities and the continuous nag of the corn sellers make you feel irritated. However the lake is very clean. You can indulge in horse rides if you are keen on the same. The horses are really healthy and good looking.
