“Excellent for Family Outings”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2012

This lake provides safe swimming for children of all ages. The Christian Center is located on private property within the National Forest, but is open to the public. Hotel rooms are available here as is a dining hall and a snack bar. The latter provides mostly grilled items like hamburgers and to our delight a grilled chicken sandwich. Hand-dipped ice cream offered 8-10 choices. We particularly liked a Mocha Almond nut. Outdoor seating was comfortable in the shade, probably because of the elevation. With 2 National parks nearby, this might be a good place to stay, as the drive from nearby Visalia, requires 1.5-2 hrs on very windy roads with an elevation gain of over 4,000 feet. The Lamp Liter Inn in Visalia is highly recommended for those who need more city type services.

“Much more of a lake”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2012

This lake is not only beautiful and situated in the middle of the woods as far as the eye but also plenty of activities for children and adults such as canoes and trails for trekking. The ability to swim in lagiìo makes this place a beautiful destination for many people.

“Beautiful spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2012

We thought it would be too busy as it was a weekend before the kids went back to school, but we found parking and a picnic spot right away. We rented a kayak and a row boat. If you have a small child, <7, I would recommend a kayak and put the child in the middle, even though they say the kayak seats 2 do it. The row boat was hard to manage for some reason. Enjoy
