Went to the lake with some friends to spend the day and I was just amazed by how wonderful and beautiful is the nature around all the lake. Wish I had stayed longer around

“Very pretty and peaceful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2013

We saw the lake from a viewpoint where we were the only people present. It was lovely and we really enjoyed sitting on a bench observing birds and listening to the sounds of nature. Just what the doctor ordered!
