5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2012

In mid December we were the only visitors at the time. We watched 3 of their movies. Really good. The person staffing the visitor center was very friendly and helpful.

I was there as a little child and to this day I'm still amazed. My sister used to work there during the 70's.

“Beautiful lake with great fishing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2012

Wonderful lake for boating and fishing. Wonderful camping sites all along the lake. The dam is a fascinating tour. Great to have such a beautiful lake right in our "back yard."
