“Love it -”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

There are so many places to pull off and just enjoy the scenery - no matter what time of year. This year, we hope to do some camping. We've never done any swimming at the beach - boating and hiking are our favs.

“Dirty and poluted”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2013

This lake is poluted due to sewage from surrounding houses, and also they allow power boats to run all over the place poluting the water with gasoline.

“Huge Lake, nice scenery”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012

Huge lake, nice scenery, just concerned a bit with safety. We didn't see too much of a security/police presence. Just be aware of your surroundings when there, otherwise enjoy the scenery.
