Being a photographer and seeing the images others have producted from the tuffa formations, I have always wanted to visit the lake.
It isn't what I thought it could be. There are some formations on the south shore heading east along the lake, but you have to really watch for the signs to get you there.
There is a fee to park before you head out along the lake. Could figure out why a natural lake would have a fee... I was thankful my National Parks pass worked. You just lay that on your dash and enjoy the short walk to the lake.
Best time for taking photos is at sunset for those wanted to capture the warmth of the sun on the lake. Be prepared. There are a lot of birds and flies, but I wasn't bothered by either.
Oh, there are snakes as well, but harmless! Lizards and other things along the trail make the overall experience nice.
Would I recommend this to others? Yes, maybe! Would I come and visit again? More than likely not. The old saying, been there, done that! But on the other hand, I am glad I finally made the side trip to see what others have been talking about.
If you have never been, one trip would most likely be nice.
