Your first summer dip in the lake will always be memorable; it's peaty water so you don't see much below the surface. But don't worry, jump in and enjoy it. There are lots of decks to lay on, the last time we were there, areas...More

What a beautiful lake to walk around, surrounded by majestic mountains and at end of the walk you can enjoy some tasty treats from the outside cafe!

At the entrance to the lake there is access to the lake plus areas where you can have a picnic, however, all around the lake has spots you can picnic and access the lake quite easily. Beautiful place, enjoy!
